Dear Brett

Here one of the USA / Boer war combos. I confirmed this from his death records because he was receiving a pension from the US navy. In his American papers he also entitled to a Sampson medal.

Thank you for showing those exceptional groups.

I was particularly interested to see the Spanish-American War Medal with a QSA. I have a QSA to a Canadian who claimed to have served in the Spanish-American War, but it seems more likely that he was working on a road through the Rockies in western Canada at the time.

The group with the German and French medals must surely be unique.

You are very fortunate to have these groups in your collection and I hope we will be seeing more like them.

Regards
Brett

Munroe and Brett - Many thanks for those excellent pictures. I really enjoy seeing the QSA in unusual combinations.

Munroe - I have rotated the image of the group containing the 1953 Coronation Medal.

Justin - I have started a new thread on Alexander von Stosch and added some more information.

Kind regards
David

The group to Lt Norton-Taylor, ILH. He had served in the American Army gaining the Spanish War Service Medal in 1898. He later served during the Boer War and through the Great War.
