He might be one of the Majors. Dugdale was a Boer War vet and an officer of an RWF battalion in 1918.

I don't think that's him though as he won a DSO as a Major in 1918 and the Lt Col photo looks earlier than that..

QSA records exist for:

CSM Mercer 49th Coy 9th Bn IY
Maj W M Dugdale 49th Coy 9th Bn IY
Capt RWH William Wynn 49th Coy 9th Bn IY
Capt Sykes - not on IY QSA roll so may have transferred post 1902
Capt Whitaker - as above
Capt S Parry 29 (Denbighshire) Coy 9 Bn IY
Lt FJ Walton 31st Coy 9th Bn IY
Maj Harrison is not on the IY roll.

Maj Lambert DSO does not appear on the IY QSO but as he has a DSO then he is not the Lt Col in the photo.

No QSA ribbon in the photo and no record for

Capt Bonner-Maurice
Lt Phillips
Lt Elliot
Lt Bardwell
Lt Frost
Lt Freedman
Capt Griffiths
Lt Stable
Lt Bankes


Interestingly the 3 officers with QSA who are not on the IY roll all have collar badges whilst the rest do not.

There were at least 43 Lt and Capts who served in the MIY companies in SA so narrowing it down will be a challenge.

Thanks again Alan. I assume as the MYC were renamed in 1904 this would not be too long after then, if not from before?

41st might be able to hep you?
They are listed in Bryn Owen's volume which covers the myc, its predecessors and antecedents up to 1908

I think the photo is much later that 1900-04. It must be after 1902 for the ribbon to be worn and he did not win the medal as a Lt Col so I think it is much more likely to be WW1 era when promotion was much rapid especially as they had 3 battalions to be CO of.

I had assumed he would have changed his MYC badges for the MIY or the MY?

Thanks again Alan

Did the officers change them or did they keep the same ones?

I missed a lot of it, I did not visit for a day, I came back and it had attracted a lot of interest there, here it was just Alan and me, and a post by Jonathon.

Still need the named image to get 100% certainty
