Here is a group to Corp. William Landy who served in the 5th Battalion of the Manchester Regiment in South Africa during the Boer War. He earned a Queen’s South Africa medal with the clasps South Africa 1902, Orange Free State and Cape Colony. The medal is named to him around the rim. Landy’s name is spelled Laudy. Along with the QSA is a Manchester cap badge. Landy served in Battery “D”, 55th Artillery of the 26th Division during WW1. He was wounded in action during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive on Oct. 3rd, 1918. The group has all of Landy’s original paperwork including his birth certificate, British Army Discharge, US Army Discharge, US Naturalization papers and his Death Certificate. His Purple Heart is #3558.
