Henk,

You are very welcome. I was only sorry not to find a copy of the actual speech. I'm sure that would have been an amazing story to hear.

Best wishes

Hi Guys

Thanks for posting this medal Henk, I knew you had it but was not sure it was still in the collection.

Interesting newspaper articles, great to be able to read these after all these years.

I would like to know what small device is on Capt Walker's hat?

Regards
Brian

Hello Frank,
And a good question. :)

Mainly for the DoL clasp and also a decent Regiment in my view and thirdly I thought it very reasonably priced.
Your opinions please.

Paul :)

Hello Paul,
Yes, I have always thought a good regiment, I've always liked the old 60th, they were involved in the Transvaal War too, I think with the large number of QSA's around these days, the price does become all important as well, nothing else caught your eye then?
Nice badge, did you buy that there as well?
You had a far better day than I did, yesterday! :(
Regards Frank
