Perhaps I should add that I have nothing against officially renamed medals as long as they are described as such.
Over twenty years ago now when I was rather puritanical, I bought a QSA to one of the Cape Volunteer Corps from one of the larger provincial dealers here, this particular corps had a good number of renamed medals issued, but, it was not described as such, so I returned it, knowing what I know now, I really wish I had not.
One of my medal recipients has a RoK clasp ,when he should have received a DoK clasp.
From David's Book.
Tpr Geoffrey Richard Kilroe served from 18 February 1900 to 26 January 1901. He also served in the Kimberley Town Guard at No 2 ( Schmidt’s Breastwork) and the Field Intelligence Department. His Relief of Kimberley clasp is incorrectly recorded on the Damant’s Horse QSA roll, as it was issued. He was entitled to the Defence of Kimberley clasp.
His occupation was an amalgamator.
