One of the many single clasp QSAs to the Dundee TG. This QSA is named to S. C. Daniels, Dundee Tn. Gd. He was a doctor.

You don't see many of these coming up and according to the DNW site, their last one was 2011!

Arthur Charles Brudnell was born in Lincolnshire in 1877 and attested for the Royal Dublin Fusiliers at Grantham, Lincolnshire, on 13 September 1893, having previously served in the Lincolnshire Militia. Appointed a Drummer on 17 September 1893, he served with the 2nd Battalion in India from 9 February 1894 until 17 May 1897, and then in South Africa from 18 May 1897 until 28 May 1900, where he was wounded at the Battle of Talana, 20 October 1899. He was discharged on 12 September 1905, after 12 years’ service. On the outbreak of the Great War he re-enlisted in the Lincolnshire Regiment on 4 September 1914, and was promoted Corporal on 7 October 1914, and Sergeant on 19 April 1915. He served throughout the War on garrison duties in India from 22 December 1915 until 27 March 1918 (entitled to British War Medal only), and was discharged on 28 February 1920, after a further 5 years and 178 days’ service.

The full size group to Major A C McLachlan was featured on the first page of this thread. The group has appeared for sale twice at DNW, first in Dec 2009 where it sold for £3,400 and second in March 2014 where it achieved the same price. On neither occasion were the miniatures included but they have appeared on the Australian eBay site.
