James Chandler - RIR in 1900
« on: Wednesday 22 July 20 22:36 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am looking for any information on the above person.  I do not have a lot of information on him, not even the year or where he was born or parentage.  All I know was that he was a staff sergeant in 1900 with the Royal Irish Rifles.

Many thanks

I'm not finding anything for this soldier. Where was he in 1900?

Hi ShaunJ,

I thought it would be a long shot.  I don't have any information on him other than he was in Ireland at the time, and stated he was a sergeant not staff sergeant, as I previously mentioned.  Thanks for looking though.

The RIR fought in the 2nd Boer War. Possibility he was in SA between 1899 & 1902

I couldn't see any likely candidates on the Boer War medal rolls for RIR.

Thanks for your help ShaunJ.  It may be that the information I have is not right.  I knew it would be a long shot.
