My grandfather Robert Thorburn served 12 year in the 2nd Battalion, H Company from 1890 until 1902. His service took him to Ireland, India, and South Africa and possibly other countries. He was awarded the Queen's South African Medal (with clasp I imagine). I still have his red hackle, crossed signal flags worn on his sleeve along with his discharge papers. He came to the United States after demobilization and married his fiancÚ who had proceeded him. Family lore says that when the US entered WW I he tried to enlist in the Army but was too old and had 3 daughters. I served 30 years in the US Army but have always been proud my families connection the Regiment. I was fortunate to visit the Regimental Museum in 1979 and contributed his signaler's note book to the Museums collection later on. Thank you for allowing me to share.
