Quartermaster William N HOLMES, 60th Rifles 2nd Afghan War

Postby acanthus » 01 May 2015 23:51

I believe Quartermaster Holmes served in the 2nd Afghan War in General Stewarts column; present at Ahmed Khel, marched from Kabul to Kandahar under Lord Roberts, present at the battle of Kandahar.

Can anybody confirm his medal entitlement, clasps. Bronze Star? etc.

Thanks in advance.

I can confirm the clasps and Star from the medal roll, also found the following on the internet, some of which does need to be confirmed:
