One listed under Staff, thirty-seven listed for the Australian Naval Contingent, thirty under Commonwealth of Australia and no less than one hundred and ninety one to the Australian Cadet contingent. Makes two hundred and fifty nine on the roll. According to "Australians Awarded" 1st edition by Johnson, a further unofficial group of twenty-seven mounted Cadets attended at their own expense. Initially refused 1911 Coronation medals, their CO persevered and they were presented with their medals on a parade in Sydney on 30/1/1912. Grand total of two hundred and eighty six.
According to Johnson, these medals to Australians are "often found engraved in chisel script - but value is attributed only with the provenance of a medal group or excellent original documentation".
Some time ago, I contributed a post regarding Special Service Capt. C.F.Brace's QSA/KSA/Coro1911 trio who had served with the NSW Artillery and attended the 1911 Coronation under the Commonwealth of Australia contingent.
