The continued use of your term "viewing pleasure" manages to make it sound really quite indecent! :)

Here is the only single "Rhodesia" clasp QSA that I have.

304 Tpr Joseph Poole Morey of the Southern Rhodesia Volunteers.

Gentlemen
I should have noticed this before; It was quite possible for troops to receive both "RHODESIA" clasps and "RELIEF OF MAFEKING" clasps on their QSA if they so qualified. To quote directly from the preliminary notes in S.M.KAPLANs "Medal Roll for the Relief of Mafeking" (nd):
"It is important to note that the restriction on the grant of the bar "RHODESIA" to those awarded the bar "RELIEF OF MAFEKING" (as laid down by Army under 94 of April 1901) was cancelled by Army Order 171 of 1902. Thus the combination "RHODESIA" and "RELIEF OF MAFEKING" is quite genuine."

Hello Ian,
They are very nice medals to have, I should look for a good example to the Rhodesia Regiment if I were you!

Indeed I do have both clasps on the trio to Lt. A.J.Forbes (illustrated some time ago on this forum); as well as both clasps on an OR also in the Rhod Regt. I had a single clasp Rhodesia QSA in my old collection but not so far these days. Lovely combination as you say.

Hello Ian,
All are quite nice really I suppose, but, I do like "A" Squadron in particular!
