A Victoria Cross Involvement Group for Action at Bergendal 1900

A Victoria Cross Involvement Group for Action at Bergendal 1900 - Queen's South Africa Medal, 4 Clasps - DEFENCE OF LADYSMITH, LAING'S NEK, BELFAST, CAPE COLONY (8599 Cpl S. WELLER. RIFLE BRIGADE); King's South Africa Medal, 2 Clasps - SOUTH AFRICA 1901, SOUTH AFRICA 1902 (8599 CORPL: S. WELLER. RIFLE BRIGADE.); and Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal, Edward VII (8599 Pte S. WELLER. RIFLE BDE.). Naming is officially impressed. Un-mounted, service number officially corrected on the KSA, minor contact and wear, cleaned, better than very fine. Footnote: Corporal S. Weller, 2nd Battalion, Rifle Brigade served in South Africa during the Boer War. He was carried to safety by Private Edward Durrant after being wounded during the Battle of Bergendal (AKA the Battle of Belfast or the Battle of Dalmanutha) on August 27, 1900. Durrant's feat of bravery was recognized, as he was awarded the Victoria Cross, his citation appearing in the London Gazette 27366 of Friday, October 18, 1901, page 6779: "At Bergendal, on the 27th August, 1900, Acting-Corporal Wellar (sic) having been wounded, and being somewhat dazed, got up from his prone position in the firing line, exposing himself still more to the enemy's fire, and commenced to run towards them. Private Durrant rose, and pulling him down endeavoured to keep him quiet, but finding this impossible he took him up and carried him back for 200 yards under a heavy fire to shelter, returning immediately to his place in the line." Assuming Corporal Weller was discharged prior to the First World War, it is worthy to note that 5013 Rifleman Sydney Weller, 3rd Battalion, Rifle Brigade, who was born in Mickleman, Surrey and a resident of Bletchworth Hill upon his enlistment, was Killed in Action on September 22, 1914 and is remembered with honour on La Ferte-sous-Jouarre Memorial, Seine-et-Marne, France.
