I would certainly have been reluctant to sell it had it been mine, they are quite scarce! :(

I hadn't realised the scarceness of the Colonial Auxiliary Forces Long Service Medal when issued by the colony of Transvaal.

City Coins note how the CAFLS Medals "were gazetted to men of the Forces of the Transvaal Colony between
1902 and the time of the foundation of the Union of South Africa in 1910. As these were the only military medals ever issued by the Transvaal Colony, the opportunity to add one to a collection should not be missed."

The group to E H B Armstrong

A super group, if the BWM is unnamed/erased it is a real pity, otherwise, on the face of it, super, even the AVM is named to the 7th as well!

Frank,

I think the BWM is named in the same way as the VM. It is just my listing method that suggested otherwise.

A super group for sure.

Hello David,
Okay, well in that case, indeed super, but, even without all three clasps on the first, it would still be so in my opinion, just rather more expensive as is!
Shall you be having it? :woohoo:
Regards Frank
