Having wanted to buy a Talana QSA to the Dundee Rifle Association for some time, a past City Coins auction saw two being acquired in the same sale! One of these was awarded to D M McPhail. He served in the DRA and later, during the Rebellion, in the 1st Dundee Burgher Reserves.
I think I might already have shown this group on the forum. If so, my apologies.
7308 Private F Lawrence, 1st KRRC, was with the Mounted Infantry and he was captured with the cavalry during the embarrassing ending of the Battle of Talana. After his release, he returned to his regiment and completed the war with the KRR MI. He later settled in South Africa.
