Just posted in the SA02 single clasp thread:

Queen’s South Africa, 1899-1902, 3rd type reverse, single clasp, South Africa 1902 (2637 Sowar Hazara Singh, 5th Punjab Cvlry:), clasp loose upon ribbon, minor edge bump, very fine £60-80

Previous research suggests that Sowar Hazara Singh received a silver, no clasp medal on 29 December 1902, later receiving an additional ‘South Africa 1902’clasp on 11 February 1903.

Recent evidence would suggest that this estimate is unlikely to be accurate.

One of the smaller Indian cavalry contingents with only four silver medal recipients on the roll. Last sold by Toad Hall in 1992 for £100.

Thank you David. The silver medal to Bhagta Singh sold for a hammer price of £260 at DNW last month so this one should be similar?

I imagine so. Probably one of the 200 sowars reluctantly despatched by India on the Bavarian to form a remount depot in Natal in March 1902.
