It is perhaps interesting to note that Robert Jobson's bronze QSA shows just that; his name. However, Chef P.Batice's medal carries the title "Mr".

Just now I was trawling through the roll of the 10H for a possible link in the Pte. Turtle Memorial post, when I spotted the following on p.189 of WO 100/189:


The entry concerns civilian servant Charles Cable who went to SA with a senior officer. It does not say anything about the issue of a Bronze medal; however it does mention Cable's being captured at Sanna's Post. By the way, I could not find a confiriming entry in Palmer.

However, the entry for Charles Cable on my trusty "Cavalry CD" shows Cable as "Civilian servant 10th H' and awarded a Bronze medal. Incidentally Charles Cable is noted as PoW at Sanna's Post - with a query - and "released 5/6/01.

The QSA to W Lineham has been added to the list. This was part of the 1978 Lovell collection, lot 910.

The group to Kenneth Alexander Stott was sold by City Coins in catalogue 29, December 1982:

QSA bronze (0) (K.A. Stott)
1914-15 Star Trio (4233 Pte Liverpool Regt)
Anglo-Boer War Medal named Burg K.A. Stott
Lint Voor Verwonding (Wound ribbon)

This Is a unique group of medals where the recipient, Kenneth Alexander Stott, received a bronze QSA for his civilian (?) services with the British during the Boer War (he was in Mafeking during the siege and employed as a 'nlghtwatchman' in a civilian capacity, thus was not eligible for the 'Defence'' bar). Presumably, when the siege was
lifted, he then joined to Boer Forces serving on the Staff of General Meyer. During the course of the war he was wounded and thus qualified for the Wound Ribbon. This rare ribbon — a central white stripe 4 mm wide with two wider stripes, green to left and yellow to right each 10 mm wide, edged with 4 mm stripes red to left and blue
to right. It was ordered that the ribbon (which has no medal) should be worn after that of the Decoration for Distinguished Service.
