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.

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.

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.
