The person who named this medal to Driscoll's Scouts was taking no chances and appears to have used an inverted full stop.

There is non-raised date QSA to LSH on eBay.



The pictures of the rim do not extend to the end of the unit name sadly so we cannot see the comma.

Not a cheap QSA. The seller is asking £1,000.

David.....

Re-enlisted in 2nd CMR after return of Strathcona's and is entitled to SOUTH AFRICA 1901 AND SOUTH AFRICA 1902 bars sent to him in 1904...…

Also looks like the dates have been removed.....

Took another look at the ebay listing again as I was a bit sleepy earlier this morning and I have notice "WILL NOT SHIP TO CANADA"...… It makes me laugh but have noticed a number of Canadian medals and items and the seller will not ship here and here is their best market...…

I agree regarding your comments about "will not ship to …". I frequently see it on ebay re not shipping to OZ. I don't think Canada or Australia are third world countries with a ramshackle postal system and your and my money are as good as that of anyone else. These sanctions are a puzzle to me.
Best regards
IL.

You will encounter this sort of thing a great deal these days, many people in many countries will not send their wares overseas, whilst it can be annoying, I can also understand why they prefer not to do it, with both the various differing customs/import tax rules and postage cost that are often incurred.
