Hi David

The suspender on Lund's medal looks to me like it's not the original.

I haven't got any Rifle Association QSAs but was half tempted to bid for the Nottingham Road example in the recent DNW auction for no other reason than I once stopped there to fill up my car on the way from Durban to Ladysmith! In the end, though, I didn't bother.

I think that is a very fair point, well made, I would think anyone who collects medals to members of the Rifle Associations would simply want an example to a member of a particular RA if it was missing from their collection, the numbers involved are so small, that I dare say someone would want Lund's medal, but, not me!

Just to put it out there _ I am still looking for examples to the Weston RA and the Karkloof RA .

David,

That's a great new reason for collection to a unit!

From what Mike has been saying over the years, assembling a complete collection of Rifle Association medals is a long term endeavour.
