Hi David

Yes, named up to NFA, nice to get a three campaign group and especially to my favourite unit.

The single QSA to 5163 Pte J Crabb, Gordons. From Baldwin's Jun 13 auction. My thanks to Baldwin for the permission to reproduce this image.



Private James Crabb was born in Dundee, Forfar, Scotland, and had previously worked as a Millworker, and had served with the 3rd Royal Highlanders prior to enlistment with the Gordon Highlanders on the 11th of September, 1894. He served with this famous regiment during the Second Boer War, and was present during several important actions including Elandslaagte and the Defence of Ladysmith. He served for a total of over 12 years with the colours, and is additionally entitled to the India Medal with clasp Punjab Frontier 1897-8 and Tirah 1897-8 and KSA.

It is always a great shame when medals are missing from a group. I know that re-unites do happen, but I have not succeeded with the many broken groups in my collection.
