This looks like two medals to the same recipient but in fact are two awards to different men of Kitchener's Horse

QSA (6) Relief of Kimberley, Paardeberg, Driefontein, Johannesburg, Diamond Hill, Belfast (3072 Serjt: S. Lawrence. Kitchener's Horse). Spink say all clasps are tailor's copies but the RoK looks OK to me.

KSA (2) (1946 Serjt: J. Flynn. Kitchener's F.S.), official correction to number

Samuel Lawrence served from 26 January 1900-29 May 1901 and had a duplicate Medal issued in March 1907.

I don't know why they do this, clearly two different individuals and units.

I have Sergt Flynn's QSA, now I must bid on one item with copy clasps, at a higher bid, (I certainly don't want the QSA) in order to secure the KSA.

If I am unsuccessful in a bid, then the chance of ever tracking down the buyer and re-uniting the pair is slim.

Dilemma of note
