Jan,

Noticed several queries on this thread appear to have gone unanswered.

The list of Royal Navy, Royal Marines QSA recipients is available online at www.angloboerwar.com, those who served on HMS Gibraltar are on http://www.angloboerwar.com/rn_ships/gibraltar_qsa.htm his entry is given as

Thome, Ordinary Seaman F G. QSA (0)- the zero indicates no clasps.

As there are no RN records for anyone named Thome at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/navy.asp it must be a transcription error and he's the man whose medal you have.

Searching the RN seamans' records on the National Archives site for fr* thorne shows 3 records for the Thorne surname that would have initials FG - you'll have to purchase and download the records to find out which served on the Gibraltar.
