Hi David.....

To get some of these medals with the combination of clasps shown would put a big strain on the pocket book.....

But the question was asked the Minimum to cover all 26 clasps not how many Official Medals were required so therefore I would say One..... Just Joking Guys.....

Based on past QSAs, the minimum I can cover all 26 clasps is 8 QSAs:



I am sure there will be combinations that cover all clasps with fewer medals.

Mike, I did say 'legitimate' QSA's! That medal would be at about waist level if worn.

David, if the 8 medals are/were yours you must have quite a collection, including that unique Elandslaagte and Wepener combination.

Thanks to you and Frank for the clarification on Damant's Horse. Just one of what must be many units I've never heard of before.

And Damants Horse had a number of very high bar medals.

This required some head scratching but I've got to 9 medals in my current collection covering all bars.
