A Queen South Africa Medal to Canadian Trooper Upton

A Queen South Africa Medal to Canadian Trooper Upton  - CAPE COLONY, ORANGE FREE STATE, TRANSVAAL, SOUTH AFRICA 1901, SOUTH AFRICA 1902 (1795 TPR: G. UPTON. S.A.C.). Naming is officially impressed. Light contact, bruised with edge nicks, near extremely fine. South African Constabulary Application for Enlistment, Attestation Paper, Service Records and Medal Rolls entitling him to the three battle clasps and the SA'01&0'02 clasps to the QSA.   Footnote: Gerald Upton was born on June 1, 1879 in London, England. He was a resident of Vancouver, British Columbia when he signed his Application for Enlistment with the South African Constabulary, on February 23, 1901, in Vancouver, at the age of 21, naming his next-of-kin as Edward Upton of London, England, stating that he had previous military training, that he had previously been a Lieutenant in the 1st Volunteer Battalion, Royal Fusiliers in England, that he could ride, shoot and swim, that he was Single and that his trade was that of Clerk, with the Medical Examiner noting Upton's "Excellent Physique". He began service on April 26, 1901, as a Trooper with 'A' Division of the South African Constabulary, signing his Attestation Paper on May 3rd. One year later, he was hospitalized for five weeks in Potchefstroom, from May 14 to June 19, 1902, followed two months later with a charge of misconduct for "disobedience of orders" on August 18, 1902, while stationed at Naauwpoort. Upton was discharged by purchase on February 10, 1903 at Johannesburg. It is worthy to note that Upton's records are held in South Africa, as per the copies provided here, as the Library & Archives Canada website states that they have "No Regimental Documents Available".
