Pte.J.Morrison got around a bit! Colin Walker's Siege Register tells us that he was present on the "wasp" truck ; part of the armoured train at its engagement on 14th October, four miles North of Mafeking. He served in the Mafeking Railway Vols, Nesbitt's Horse and as 62 in Aberdeen DMT. I recall that Rennie Alcock had a DofM clasp - might still have.

Many thanks IL,

An original DoM clasp is still available at £225 which isn't a bad price.

The Defence of Mafeking QSA to Tpr A. Mackenzie sold in Nobles Auctions in Australia Sale 54 (Jul 97) lot 4091 for $1,150 Aust .
I found this using Noble Numismatics search feature. I also found two other QSA's with this bar-if you use there search facility on their website it normally brings up the catalogue description.

Sale 82 Lot 3589 (Jul06) medal belonged to my late friend Tony Rudd
QSA CC, OFS, D of M, T named to 4361 Shg Sth R.Robinson 17th Lancers sold for $4,600 Aust I am convinced Tony bought this from a UK dealer-his collection which sold in this auction contained all 26 bars.

Sale 75 Lot 2614 (Mar/Apr 2004)
BSACM no clasp with Matabeleland 1893 reverse (Trooper B.B.Police)

This is the medal to J Morrison Marshalls Horse previously posted here. It has resurfaced and now has only the DOM clasp as indicated on the rolls. I purchased it ignorance of the previous posts and now am having second thoughts. However the clasp looks OK to me now. Do you think it has been replaced with an original or is this the same Dixons copy? Still has the same ribbon.

For purpose of comparison, I attach a pic of the DofM single clasp to "A.E.Stewart, Mafeking Town Gd". The lettering on the clasp you show looks OK to me.
Regards
IL.
