An excellent pick up, and a new seller. I see they are based in West Sussex, must contact them.

Collery was denied a KSA on account of his offence.

Good morning David,
Have you actually recieved the medal yet, I wonder why it was so cheap, the initial should be B and not R, Bernard Collery was also 1002 Cpl Peninsula Horse.

Here is another Wepener to the ILH, to 1290 Sgt S Evans, ILH:

Born in Oswestry, England, he served as 5020 Trooper in 2nd Brabant’s Horse in the defence of Wepener, April 1900. Discharged on 15 October 1900, he attested for the Imperial Light Horse at Green Point on 17 June 1901.
