Yes, QSA to 10H. Another interesting aspect of the trio is that neither the Queens Egypt or the QSA bear any star contacts (sometimes called "pitting"). I am pretty sure that Pte Howard never actually wore the medals he was so richly entitled to.
Thanks for your remarks
Yes, I agree, if you just want a Egypt pair that are EF, then it is really not too hard to just go out and buy such a pair today, but, finding them in that condition to the cavalry is another matter, I suppose it all depends on when a man received them and if he had cause to wear them, once a serving cavalryman started to wear his medals whilst on duty the condition would not be as issued for long.
Notwithstanding, I don't think it is really a great issue, I don't mind VF medals to the cavalry.
Kind regards Frank
