Yes, I was quite surprised when I say what Jonathan Collins was asking. I wonder what it actually sold for or whether indeed he put it into auction?

I noted the group being offered by Chris Dixon in March 2011 for 6k.

Good heavens that is steep for a non casualty. I wonder what my NMR 5 clasper with accompanying 1906 Bambatha would fetch?

That particular medal is actually very scarce indeed when compared to the Natal Mounted Rifles, certainly from memory, at least, there were only thirty or so, moreover, the Battalions wounded had been in the thick of it, I would regard it as cheap if had been sold at retail for the price on the hammer.
Examples are very hard to find and although I certainly do not remember having to pay anything like the price mentioned, they have never been cheap, it is important to understand the wretched Strada Reale have always been one of those regiments that have been eagerly sought by generations of collectors, particularly in Scotland and I dare say this will remain the case, as long as their brave deeds down the decades are remembered.
