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.

I'm always surprised how few Natal Guides medals there are. Perhaps the troops in Natal knew where they needed to go but had problems getting there?

From a geographical point of view, Natal was, and indeed is huge!
