Hello Bablefish,
In your post # 1168, the St John Ambulance Brigade in South Africa: Surviving Medals, you show two totals, 241 and 113. Which one is correct for known SJAB medals for the Boer War please? And what is the other number for? Thank you



Total 113

Hello David,
Many thanks for the mention of the Noble auction lot, an attractive specimen. I was aware of it and that's what brought me to this forum for more info, as I was considering a bid. Might you know the answer to my question, whether the (estimated) number of surviving number of medals is 241 or 113, an important factor when thinking about a medal's value.
Regards, Frank D.

Frank,

I am not sure how many of the 1,871 medals issued have survived. We have been tracking them here for a while but I have not counted up how many we have identified as extant.

BWM and VM (Capt. E. Winfield.)

Edwin Winfield served with the Royal Fusiliers in France from 14 November 1915 and was latterly commissioned Captain in the Labour Corps on 13 May 1917.

I cannot readily see a QSA.
