Armed Forces / The DSO
« on: Saturday 25 July 20 12:05 BST (UK)  »
I see in Ancestry.co.uk that the husband of one of my cousins was awarded the DSO for service in NW Europe between 1944 and 1945. The award was made on 12 April 1945 I believe.
His name was Frederick Alexander Clift and he was ultimately a Brigadier General in the Canadian Army.
I wonder if a citation or recommendation for this award is still accessible?

Thanks Shaun.
I read this as the Queen's South Africa Medal for service in the 2nd Boer War with the Transvaal Clasp.

My Great Uncle, George Shepherd Smith born 1 Feb 1878 Forfar, served in the RH & RFA (service number 14117) in South Africa.
Attested at Dundee on 2 Feb 1901, discharged 28 Sept 1902
I am interested to know if he was awarded any medals during his engagement

Thank you all for these valuable contributions which fill in a few more gaps.
Forfarian in particular may be interested to note that James Blues and Mary Whyte were my great -great grandparents and my great aunt Susan Mann was married to a Robert Keith 1892-1943
The marriage of Alexander Blues 1771 and Charlotte Duncan 1775 however still remains elusive
