The Boer Revolt 1880-1881  Note: This period is not commemorated with a campaign medal. The campaign was a failure for the British, but was still certainly deserving of at least a clasp to either the South Africa Medal 1877, or the Cape of Good Hope General Service Medal. Anyway, a specific medallic commemorative never happened, but a number of men who served in this campaign would eventually be in receipt of one of the aforementioned medals for other service anyway.
