I am trying to research a New Zealand War medal to a member of the Riding Establishment of the Royal Artillery.
The medal is named as follows:
1835 BOMBDR John Donovan RID ESTAB RA
I have found out that a number of the Artillery were mounted on local horses and used as cavalry during the war. I am presuming that Bdr Donovan was sent out to train the horses and men.
Any further information would be gratefully accepted.
