In recent months I've been collecting Town Guard QSA's but find that when I talk to dealers/collectors, they also include District Mounted Troops as Town Guard troops. Is this correct i.e. a generalisation of 'Home' Guard troops that could be mounted or non-mounted. I have a list of Town Guard units, is there such a list for DMT's and if so can someone help me by sending me a copy?
There appears to be a very comprehensive list of DMTs in British Battles and Medals (2006 edition). There is also a similar list of TGs.
I always considered that DMTs and TGs were different bodies.
Thanks for the info. I'm glad that someone else considers them different. Interestingly the reason for my question is that I was offered a Hex River TG QSA. When I got home I found that there was no such Town Guard unit. On purchasing the medal, it is to a Hex River DMT recipient. I'm not unhappy as I understand that there were only 23 to HR so quite a rarity in itself.
