A superb and scarce medal, very nice indeed.

In line with the Topic, IL would offer the following examples for viewing and comment:
QSA with clasps "Relief of Kimberley", "Paardeburg", "Dreifontein", "Johannesburg", "Diamond Hill", "Belfast"
Impressed to "5, Tpr. L.Bramley, C.IN.C. Bdygd"





Trooper Lionel Bramley served with Lord Roberts' Bodyguard between 23/1/00 and 24/6/00 and his medal was issued 23/2/05. A quick check on the original members of Lord Roberts' Bodyduard gives a total of seventy-one. Clasp entitlements appear to vary a little.
Regards to all
IL.

IL,

I have been through some of the attestation papers for the CincBG but cannot see Tpr Bramley. Most of the papers seem to relate to the expansion of the Body Guard. It could be misfiled.

Do you have any CinCBG attestation papers?
