This is not something often seen as it is an impossible complete entitlement. The QSA is being sold by DNW next week. The recipient 2386 Pte. F. McCabe, S. Lanc. Regt. is additionally entitled to OFS, Tr, RoL and LN

This 'impossible single entitlement' has come up before and I will try to find the thread later. It concerns the issue error made in respect of Imperial Light Horse casualties at the Battle of Colenso, who were issued their QSA's early, apparently following the intervention of Winston Churchill on behalf of one of their number (Tpr Fred A Freshney, ILH). Justin subsequently located a memorial to Freshney and I will look for that thread as well.

Finding a genuine (although issued in error) single clasp 'Tugela Heights' QSA is on my long, and never diminishing, wish list.

Regards
Brett
