Some pictures of Sandford's two QSAs and the quite different styles of naming. The suspender on the upper, single clasp medal is very loose as you can see.







On his 7 clasp medal, Wepener is the 5th and this image shows how it was unofficially attached at some point.

Mike, I agree with Adrian, a really superb pair and these medals are not only hard to find, but, on occasion when they do actually turn up, they are becoming very expensive indeed to acquire.

Zuluman,

That's a really nice selection of Wepener QSAs, especially the first pair.
