Chris Dixon is offering a BSACM, Rhodesia 1896, to Trooper J A Raubenheimer, Gifford's Horse. The description says there are contact marks, possible from other medals,

On the QSA roll are a handful of men of this surname including one A J Raubenheimer. He was in the National Scouts but his medal was returned.
