Hi everyone,
Haven't posted for a while but had to share this superb tribute medal.
No, not mine but on a friend's website just listed.
Looks in lovely condition and I would say very rare.
Cheers
Paul

Recipient's QSA was sold April 2015, a nice, if expensive, re-unite.

QSA (4) Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Johannesburg, Diamond Hill (979 Bugr. A. T. Lambert. CIV);
together with a London Borough of Willesden Tribute Medal, silver, gold, and enamel, the reverse engraved ‘A. T. Lambert. CIV 21st. Middlesex Regt.’, with integral ‘1899 South Africa 1900’ suspension bar, minor blue enamel damage to last.

Arthur Thomas Lambert was born in Somerstown, London on 25 May 1876. A piano maker by occupation, he enlisted into the 21st Middlesex Rifle Volunteer Corps (the Finsbury Rifles) on 18 January 1898 and served with their detachment in South Africa as a Bugler in the Infantry Battalion of the City Imperial Volunteers. The 1911 census records Lambert’s address as 6 Bathurst Gardens, Willesden and he is confirmed in Hibbert’s appendix as a recipient of the Willesden Boer War Tribute Medal.

He died in Hampstead in 1957.

The Willesden Tribute Medal, Ref. Hibbard A 26, is one of the most attractive tribute medals, and was presented by the Borough of Willesden, Middlesex, to the 53 volunteers from the borough who served in South Africa.
