£168 was certainly a very considerable sum of money back then, was there commission to be added too?

Hi David,
I am amazed to see this medal, I am related to William Brewin, I have letters and photo's of him and yes indeed he is buried in Cape Town.
He died of Tyhpus after surviving the war.
William and another chap left Shirebrook in Derbyshire to join the fight, both coalminers.
Would it be possible to find who bought they medal as my family would love to get it back.
Regards
Richard

An unusual Wepener group including an Egypt Medal and a seemingly self-awarded KSA from Sotheby's November 1995:

Egypt (5) Tel-El-Kebir Suakin 1884 The Nile 1884-5 El-Teb-Tamaai Kirbekan (Pte 1/RH);
QSA (4) CC Wep Tr Witt (629 Sgt P Donaldson, Kaff Rifles)
KSA (2) (renamed Sgr Mjr 3rd RPR);
Khedive Star dated 1882.

Peter Donaldson was discharged from the KR on 5 November 1900 and did serve in the 3rd RPR between January and July 1901 earning the SA01 clasp rather than the KSA. It appears he joined the Johannesburg Police on leaving the RPR so perhaps he believed he had earned the KSA?

In his RPR attestation he asked that the sum of 2/6 per day was stopped from his pay and sent monthly to his wife Mrs Kate Donaldson, Robinson's Road, Queenstown.
