Thanks for the info David

I have a number of medals with the Elandslaagte clasp but among my favourites are my 2 NFA ones - to Gnr. P. Gascoyne (along with other medals) and to Dvr. J. Munro (single issue) where there is a family connection with the latter.

Regards

Rory

I found this picture of the NFA, commemorating their time at Elandslaagte.

Does anyone know where this is?

Good heavens David,
Prices began to move on that particular day, I made the mistake of not staying over in the city the night before, the buying strategy was "put" together over an early breakfast on a Virgin West Coast train, but, two very happy days to be sure.
The catalogue still has stains from that breakfast on it too! :ohmy:
Kind regards Frank
