Durkin's QSA hammered for a reasonable £380 this afternoon. This was nearly half the cost of the QSA to Stoddart and £700 less than the QSA to Knibbs. Not sure I can work out why that is.

Hi
One of my prized DCM's (from the Spink Boer War Sale)

DCM/QSA to Gunner P Nolan, "Q" Bty, RHA
According to the Muster Roll, Nolan was a gunner in "A" Subdivision of Q Battery at Sannas Post.
A mutilated submission recommending Nolan, among others, for the DCM is to be found in WO 146/1 but the date is missing.
Nolan's Citation is in WO 32/7878

The WO file refers to the action as at Korn Spruit which was the other name used in literature.

Henk,

I can see why that pair is so prized. Great to have a citation too.
