Thank you for posting, David,
What a magnificent group, and more so with the important photos and document of the period. Just a pity that most of the later are spread over two or three lots. I hope they can be kept together.
Regards

Gavin

Described as:

The collection of Thomas William Glover (1858-1950) - a rare South Africa campaign group of three medals awarded to Thomas William Glover, Queenstown Volunteer Contingent, British South Africa Company Police (British South Africa Police), and Army Service Corps, comprising South Africa 1877-79 Medal with 1877-8 clasp, British South Africa Company Medal (Mashonaland 1890 Medal) with three clasps (Mashonaland 1890, Matabeleland 1893 and Mashonaland 1897), and Queen's South Africa Medal with Transvaal clasp, all with ribbons, the South Africa 1877-79 Medal named to 'PTE. W.T. GLOVER, QUEENSTOWN VOL: CONTGT.', the British South Africa Company Medal named to 'TPR. T.W. GLOVER, B.S.A.C.P.', the Queen's South Africa medal named to 'CONDUCTOR T.W. GLOVER', all with ribbons (3). Footnote - it is cited that only 15 men qualified for the B.S.A.C.P. Medal with three clasps although sometimes this tally is quoted as just 12 (see Edward C Joslin, ‘Observer Book of British Awards and Medals’, page 120, published by Frederick Warne & Co, 1973).




Does anyone know what this group went for yesterday?

If the winner of the T.W. Glover medals sees this post, I won the photo album lots. So if they ever come to sell the medals in the future, I would really appreciate a quick heads up, just in case I have the money to buy them and reunite them with the paperwork.

Many thanks.
