I got 3/3

Nothing spectacular but they are as follows:

Natal 1906, 1 clasp, 1906 (Tpr. C. P. L. Flood, Natal Police.) also entitled to a QSA with Elandslaagte to the NFA and a KSA to the NVCR

Queen’s South Africa 1899-1902, 5 clasps, Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Transvaal, South Africa 1901, South Africa 1902 (1725 3rd. Cl Tpr: R. Mc.Kenzie. S.A.C.)

Queen’s South Africa 1899-1902, 3 clasps, Cape Colony, Orange Free State, South Africa 1901(4131 Sgt. A. R. Meurant, Lanc. Fus.)


All were bought for their research potential.

Regards

Rory

I got the regimentally rare/unique China 1900 to the South Wales Borderers which is missing the QSA and some other non-ABW medals.

I went for 1180 too - it was way under-estimated at 240-280 so I bid really high (I thought) but was no were near the £1200 it went for. :(

Queen’s South Africa 1899-1902, 4 clasps, Relief of Mafeking, Elandslaagte, Defence of Ladysmith, Transvaal (44 Tpr. B. H. Hardy, Imp. Lt. Horse), good very fine £240-280
Footnote
Hardy was the son of the Bandmaster of the 2nd (Volunteer) Battalion, South Wales Borderers, a veteran of the Indian Mutiny, in which he served in the 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars. According to a local newspaper obituary, Hardy Jr. ‘served with the I.L.H. in the Boer War, being in the siege of Ladysmith’ and was employed for over 23 years by the East Rand Proprietary Mines.

Sold with two newspaper obituary cuttings, for father and son, together with a doctor’s report concerning the recovery of ‘Mr. & Mrs. B. H. Hardy’ following a car accident in Natal in August 1935

Last night I spoke to the collector who bought 1180, to say he is pleased is an understatement.
