Good Morning Everyone......

The post office has just delivered a QSA to the British South Africa Police......

The medal has no bars but according to FMP he is entitled to Relief of Mafeking, Transvaal and Rhodesia, which sound correct......

He is listed as a Lance-Corporal, ll (Bulawayo) Division, British South Africa Police, which also sounds correct......

Now the medal is named: 334 Private J. S. Hudson, British S.A. Police

I have checked it against the other B.S.A.P. medals that I have and they are all named TROOPER, except NCO's and Officers of course......

If someone who has access to WO 100/238 Page 32 can they please check to see if it is Trooper or Private and if J.T. or J.S.......

Wonder when they changed from Private to Trooper or vice versa.......

Thanks in advance......

Mike

P.S. Nice thing as well is it has about 10 inches of original ribbon.......
