    lovely medals pre WW2,a lost art now in UK.
    Not really a lost art, it's just that there are just as many "marriages" regarding the bars. As there are fake T.R awards. Again research pays off, or asking advice on forums such as this. Re-stamping/engraving are always out there, even if it was done a long, long time ago & not by dealers. Boer war & QSA's are the ones most enhanced, along with Crimea medals. As with any medal collecting, it's all research, research before buying. Stewy

    the other interesting technical detail is the hand holding the wreath points at the R in Africa, the later versions have it pointing at the F.

    He may not have been entitled to a KSA award of QSA didnt necessarily entitle to immediate award of KSA it would depend when he was in country, as you can see from the roll people were coming and going throughout the Regiments time in S.Africa.
    I know this, but if he was not entitled to the KSA I would expect him to have the South Africa 1901 or 1902 clasps on his QSA.

    Cant remember when Vicky popped off but i think she was still on the throne when this chap returned to blighty so no king yet equals no KSA. I also dont recall when the actual medals were issued but it could be the case that this chaps time was up hence his return and what he went away with is what we see here it would have been difficult for a non serving private to get his bar entitlement up to current issue if he even knew or cared. Theres certainly no bar on the roll for 01 or 02 so maybe theres another sheet somewhere in kew.

    Ahh yes Harry, I see what you mean. That's one of the reasons I took more interest in T.R German awards. More indepth, & challenging. A minefield of fakes though. Stewy

    wow! kick ass thank you so much stewy!
    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
