Hi Adrian and Forum members,
I recently purchased QSA with 4 bars to Pte DJ Howe CC, OFS, SA01 & 02; Cape Police distr 1; when I tried checking the name on the forum list all I got
' no record ' response.
Can you cast more light on this chap please? Service record or perhaps a medal roll? Where can I search?

Hello Evyn,

Are you sure the medal is not named to O.J (Owen James) Howe ?

He has no extant attestation papers in Cape Town but there will be an entry in the enlistment registers. I have his roll pages if you would like a copy.

If so please drop me your email address and I will send them on.

Cheers

Good luck to everyone with bids in the auction on the 1st and 2nd.

May all your successes be at the lowest end of the estimate!

Thank you David. This time round I'm going for a couple of SAGS medals.

How did everyone get on?

I got 1/2 and 2/2 at Bosleys.

Does anyone know who bought lot 819 at DNW, hammered for a mighty £750:

Queen’s South Africa 1899-1902, 4 clasps, Relief of Kimberley, Paardeberg, Driefontein, Johannesburg (2016 Tpr: G. Falcon, Roberts Horse)
