This group goes under the hammer on Friday/Saturday at Laidlaw Auctioneers in Carlisle.

Not too much information on the group. The online catalogue says:

A Victorian campaign medal group comprising Egypt medal with clasp Gemaizah 1888, India medal with clasp Relief of Chitral 1895, Khedive's Star and Queen's South Africa medal to 2615 Pte R K Dick, 2nd KOSB


Estimate £200-250.

The amusingly named Robert King Dick (he signed his own name R King Dick ) an eighteen year old moulder, from Edinburgh, joined the Kings Own Scottish Borderers at Berwick on the 10th of January 1888, with considerable foreign and campaign service, he was recalled to the Colours and served in South Africa from the 5th of January 1900 until the 1st of January 1901, all his medals are very clearly shown on his discharge paper and subject to their condition, that particular estimate would be rather conservative.

Doubtless, Paul Laidlaw himself would say a "come and buy me" estimate!
