In the next Kaplan auction there is a QSA named to Pietersburg Light Horse:

Lot T023
QSA (2) Tvl and SA1902
585 Tpr M. GOLDWASSER Pietersburg L.H.
With a photocopy of the original page of the Roll showing his bar entitlement. He is mentioned in the book “The Bushveldt Carbineer’s and the Pietersburg L.H.” by Bill Woolmore Page 194 VF+
Est R2800

I was wondering how rare are QSAs to the PLH and how much of a premium their predecessor unit adds?

I don't have a record of previous sales, but I suspect that the medals are rare. I also suspect that the estimate for the one on Kaplan's auction is hopelessly unrealistic and that the medal will go for a high price.

William Angus had prior service in the BVC. His clasps are verified on WO100/263p151 and 263p197.
