At the Fair yesterday, Philip Burman was showing a QSA (1) RoK to 8534 Sgt Louis ASC. There was no information available to confirm the clasp but subsequent checking has confirmed that RoK is not his sole entitlement. Shame as the QSA was in great condition.

From the next Bonhams sale

Five to Private J.G.Barker, South African Infantry,
Queen's South Africa 1899-1902, one bar, Relief of Kimberley (2194 Tpr:G.Barker Roberts Horse);
1914-15 Star (Pte J.G.Barker 7th Infantry);
British War and South African Victory Medal (Pte J.G.Barker. 1st S.A.I.), this with MID as worn on tunic as opposed to full size;
Kimberley Star, with 'a' hallmark, missing top suspension.
Silver War Badge (SA6307). Edge bruise to the first and suspension bent, otherwise very fine. (6)

M.I.D. London Gazette 4.1.1917.

His QSA with clasps RoK, OFS and Tr is listed on WO100/267p101 (Roberts' Horse).

DMU from Roberts' Horse 29 Sep 1900.

Also served 1160 Tpr 2nd ILH.

KSA (2) on WO100/361p215 (ILH roll). The roll notes 'awaiting address' so he perhaps never received his KSA?
