Hello Paul,
I think some of those medals would fit quite well into your collection, mine too! :sick:

But thank you for your comments, was a little dissapointed with the quality of the images but I hope they are of interest.

These are excellent pictures. You ought to be on the marketing team for the Museum!

I especially like the hint of a VC in the last image.

Many thanks
David

We ought to have a section on museums with information on their Boer War collections. The KRRC Museum is notable in this regard for its medal display and Boer War displays.

I remember buying a guide to military museums in the UK many years ago and highlighting the ones that were reviewed as having good medal collections.

Best wishes
David
