Good Evening Everyone......

This has shown up on ebay and to me it is a made up piece.....   The QSA looks like it was at one time broached and then the bars added......

Someone has misread the medal roll, his entitlement to Wepener is crossed out as he was a reliever not a defender.

The QSA to Gordon Ryan just sold for £400.

Interestingly on the 1st Brabant's Horse roll he has the number 1 so was he the first man to join Brabant's Horse?
