Ladies/Gents,

This is my first post on the forum.

I usually collect British Police medals, but am considering branching out. To Cape Colony Police or British South Africa Police Medals.

First question being is there any room for me in this field, how regularly do these medals come onto the market? When they do are they highly contested?

I only have a modest budget so doubt I'd be in the league of medals to chaps from particular actions, but would be more in the sphere of the box standard clasps.

How much scope if any, is there for researching these medals?

Are there any books on their involvement in the Boer War?

Hi Station Cat..... Welcome to the forum..... You helped me on the BMF over the Worth Family of police medals...…

Don't forget along with Cape Police and the BSAP, there is also the Natal Police and the South African Constabulary all of which are very collectable and can be researched..... There are several members here that are also interested in police medals...…
