Surnames: H Bowman
2023 Pte H Bowman
I have a Queens Medal with 5 bars SA 1902, SA 1901, Transvaal, Orange Free State and Cape Colony. When my grandfather, also H Bowman, died we found this medal in his belongings. My granfather born in 1895 was injured in WWI, Royal Irish Rifles. I am trying to find information about where H Bowman came from etc. Is this information available on line?

Hello David,

I know that your first message on H. Bowman was a year and a half ago, but I was just wondering if you were still interested in Hugh Bowman.

I have finished transcribing the RPR and have a copy of his enrolment form if you would like a copy.

Regards, Malcolm
