My name is Wim, I'm a Spanish based Belgian interested in history (WW1, Spanish Civil War, WW2, etc.) and I'm also a medal collector (mostly Belgian WW1, Spanish, but also from other countries, and especially in miniatures).
I would like to do some research on the following miniature medal bar that covers the Boer war, WW1 and WW2 and maybe to try to identify the militar it belonged to.
That is a lovely group of medals, seemingly as it was worn at the time.
In terms of the recipient, I think he would be very difficult to trace. Is there any indication on the DSO whether it is Victorian or George V? Many officers received the CB, CMG and DSO for the Great War (presuming these are not higher grades of the orders).
Sorry not to be more help.

I did have a look at the clasps but I don't think they will be of particular help. Some 12,000 were in the the relief of Ladysmith so the pool, even if you focus on the officers, is large. It would be possible to narrow it down to a handful of men but that would require a lot of work in my opinion.
Another option would be to search past catalogues for the full size medals in case they have appeared on the market . But again, another long shot.
