Queen South Africa Medal to Canadian Mounted Rifles / NWMP connection - PTE MULHERNFull size, original medal, QUEENS SOUTH AFRICA, with six bars, Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Johannesburg, Diamond Hill, South Africa 1901 and South Africa 1902, with ribbon. Impressed along edge 353 PTE. P. MULHERN. CANADIAN M.R. (Canadian Mounted Rifles). In RONCETTI & DENBY'S book, The Canadians who served in the Boer War, he is not listed as being issued with the 1901 SA bar but this is not uncommon. Spelling incorrect in book at MUTHERN.
From his service record it appears that Mulhern had previous service with the NWMP and was discharged from the Canadian Mounted Rifles 4 Oct 1900 and transferred to the Transvaal Constabulary, later South African Constabulary. In his NWMP Police files, which is over 43 pages long, is a discharge certificate showing he served in the NWMP 20 June 1901 to 26 Sept 1902, his Boer War time and then served several years thereafter.
Another interesting note on his Boer War file is a letter from Commissioner A.B. PERRY (Commissioner of the NWMP 1 Aug 1900 - 31 Mar 1923), from Ottawa, to Col. Thomas D.B. EVANS, (Commanding Officer of the 1st Canadian Mounted Rifles) dated Dec 10, 1901, at Regina, stating that Const. Mulhern was anxious to enlist but refused by surgeon (Copy of this on file) for deficient teeth, "Do you want him", to which Evans replied, "Would like Mulhern to come".
