Unusual example Linneyl - have you any idea how many were issued with the Belfast clasp to the NP?

I have seen a figure of just 36 Belfast bars to the NP

According to some paperwork with the medal, there are twenty-five "Belfast" clasps to the NP on the QSA roll.

Meurig (SWB) and I wrote about Buller's Bodyguard in the OMRS Journal of September 2009 (Vol 48, No 3, 162-169). The pics below are of the medals of two of the Bodyguards that are still in my collection. Both groups were shown in the Journal article.

I just checked my collection and I have three QSAs to the Natal Police:

Inspector William Frederic Fairlie, T,RoL commander Buller's Bodyguard (with SAGS - Lt Shepstone's Native Horse)
Trooper 2219 John Dudley Thompson, TH,RoL (possibly member of Buller's Bodyguard)
Trooper 2561 CR Young - SA01,SA02

I have long thought that the Fairlie medals and those of Abraham should be in the same collection, since they were the two commanders of Buller's Bodyguard during its short period of existence.
