William Walsh - c1912

Joe has sent this picture of his grandfather [picture #955] who was lost on the Natal.

He says "This is another photograph of my grandfather William Walsh, his cousin William Rice in army uniform, and a friend possibly from HMS Natal. Perhaps some of your viewers may recognise him and also possibly the medals my grandfather is wearing."
Picture added on 19 December 2005
My stepfather served on Natal and has a medal dated 1915 and inscribed with his name Clifford Cyril Parker and also inscribed "from the people of Natal" I also have his hatband and a newspaper cutting from an Ipswich newspaper about the sinking, any information on the medal would be welcome, Antiques Roadshow have no knowledge of the medal.
