  • I have this mans Queens South Africa medal. I came across it as a disc only and I have restored it with repro hanger and the correct 5 clasps awarded of SA 1901, Diamond Hill, Johannesburg, Orange Free State and Cape Colony. He was a combat veteran and invalided out in 1901, This unit saw considerable action in several different parts of the Boer War. It is also possible he was a POW of the Boers for a very short time as they released the 3rd contingent captives as that was normal of the Boers who were constantly on the move. If family are interested in the medal, it is for sale. I am sorry I can't donate it as it has cost me a considerable sum of money. However I would be keen to put it into family hands if possible.
