Ian,

If you are going to have a DoL clasp in your collection, the Natal Guides is one of the more desirable units.

Best wishes

Hello Ian,
A superb and very rare medal, verified twice in WO100/301.
Kind Regards Frank

Frank,

The reference to WO100/301 takes me back to NA days and paging through the microfilms. I recall being surprised by the inclusion of the Natal Guides in the FID rolls but pleased to have finally tracked them down.

It would be a lot easier these days!

Best wishes
David

Hello David,
Yes, same here and I've still got my old copies too, all uncovered folio, not the case with those now available on line.
Ian's medal really is superb though!
Kind regards Frank

Thanks chaps
I first looked it up in the Buxtion FID book. From memory,he shows less than a dozen single bar DofL's to the Natal Corps of Guides. There are quite a few multiples.
