I have been through the 26 pages that list Rifle Association medals to determine the net number. I will add this information to a new map this evening.

With regards to Karkloof Rifle Association and of the 15 names listed, 12 were issued off Murray's Horse and the remaining 3 were returned to the Mint. This leaves net zero.

Has anyone ever seen a QSA to Karkloof Rifle Association?

I have never seen a QSA named up to the Karkloof RA and would be pleased if there wasn't one as it only leaves Weston RA to be found to complete the collection of Natal Rifle Associations

Here is the basis for the number of QSAs issued to the Rifle Associations.



Individual rolls are available on the unit pages: www.angloboerwar.com/unit-information/natal-ras

Well done, David. It does pose some questions ( to me anyway). I was always under the impression that no medals were issued named to the Mtshwati RA and so I acquired one to a member of the RA who was issued the medal off the Murray's Horse roll. This seemed to tick the box . Now I see that there are 4 actually named to the RA. Will this quest ever end ?
