A recent purchase off the popular online auction.
QSA , C.C, O.F.S., Joh., Dia Hill.
Frederick Pawla, born 1876, Kimbledon, Eng.
Prev service with Permanent Section 3 Coy, NSW Engineers.
This appears to be his full entitlement of clasps, I have checked the medal roll and couldn't find anything referring to an SA01 clasp.
I don't usually collect QSA's to the other states and generally concentrate on Queensland but I couldn't let this one go.
Glad it has gone to a good home, I was not allowed to bid for some reason after an initial bid to get me on the books. You have something very special there, WW1 and 2 service and yes he IS THE Frederick Pawla - Artist
