John Alfred Ashford's Regiment

Classification: Military
Surnames: Ashford
Boer War experts I need your help please. My grandfather, John Alfred Ashford (born Birmingham, England), served in the Second Boer War (1899-1902) as a private and received both the King’s and Queen’s South Africa Medal. The latter has six bars: Belfast, Diamond Hill, Johannesburg, Driefontein, Paardeberg and Relief of Kimberley. These medals are not in my possession and so I’m unable to determine his regiment. Does anyone know of a likely regiment in which he may have served given this list of offensives? He was not a casualty. He also received the India medal 1895 for Tirah (1897-98) and Punjab Frontier (1897-98). Any help would be very much appreciated.
