A recent find. A QSA with five clasps: Relief of Kimberly, Paardeberg, Driefontein, Transvaal and Wittebergen named to: 300 Trooper James Scott, Royal Horse Guards who was born in Selkirk and served for 12 years. This is his only medal entitltement. As a PoW, it's a scarce medal as there were only 428 PoWs captured along with seven field artillery pieces and 117 wagons on 31 March, 1900. He was later released.

His Great War service appears to be very interesting too, now all you need to do is find his pair and SWB, I wonder if they still exist.
What made you think that the QSA was his only entitlement?

Hi Frank,
Well this is good and welcome news. I just got the medal from a dealer who said it was his only entitlement. It's nice to know the story is longer and I'll most definitely delve into it over the holidays. Thanks so much.
All the best, John

Agreed!

Great find John, good luck with the re-unite and research into his WW1 service.
