Serjeant Hugh Francis Riggall DCM
Hugh won the Distinguished Conduct Medal on 3rd March 1901 while serving with the 109th (Yorkshire Hussars) Company of the Imperial Yeomanry at Lichtenburg in the Second Boer War. London Gazette, 9 July 1901
"Was foremost in rushing a house, in which rush one man was killed and two wounded, he afterwards volunteered to carry a message through the Boers' lines, he also brought a wounded man into shelter, and did good work throughout the day."
At Riby I also saw Mr. Frank Riggall, of Croxton, where the soil is Wold land with a chalk subsoil, who with his son farmed 3,000 acres in the Lincoln, Boston, and Market Rasen districts. Mr. Riggall, who had many years' experience in husbandry, said that, although he was not going out of business himself, he did not think the outlook any brighter than it had been. Where he lived the feeling among farmers was 'rather down', and some of his neighbours said that they kept losing money. Still the past six or eight years had been better than the six year that went before them. Haggard, H. Rider. (1902).
