This is a special thank you message to David.

Recently when doing some final editing for a well-known Postal Auction catalogue (Auction 70 will be stupendous and will probably close shortly before the Boris Johnson October BREXIT date) in an endeavour to determine the full name of a medal recipient.

Imagine my joy when I noted David’s posting of some new Town Guard medals offered for sale by London Medals.

My e-mail was quickly buzzing and I have been delighted to be able to report to my son-in-law that I have secured the purchase of the medal awarded to my eldest grandson’s great great grandfather with whom he shares his first, second and surname!

So David, from Cape Town, this is a very special thank you for hosting this Forum and for all the tireless effort, dedication and considerable amount of time you selflessly spend in making so much information available to collectors like me.

Thank you

RobM

The QSA to J Reynolds of Ladybrand Town Guard.

Ladybrand in the OFS possessed a very small Town Guard according to the roll. 8 men are listed. The low number may either represents the small size of the TG or the date on which the roll was composed. It was signed in Bloemfontein, 11 March 1908. The roll was processed quickly with the medals being available for distribution the following month.

Of the 8 issued, this is the only example I have recorded.
