Mike,

We have seen this one before at Spink. It is described as renamed which is a shame if it has been renamed from the original recipient, if indeed it was every issued.

From City Coins 70:

QSA with RAISED DATED REVERSE 1899-1900 EF
R70.000 - 90.000
3 bars: Natal, OFS, Belf
340 Pte. A.W. O'Brien Ld. Strathcona's H.

The clasps worn with the medal are loose on the ribbon.

Private O'Brien was also entitled to the clasp SA 1901, which was sent separate from the others.

Interestingly, O'Brien retained the original shaped wire hanger from which the medal was suspended when presented by the King.

According to a Regimental Order dated 8 October 1900 O'Brien was in a group who left that day to join the Transvaal Police.

However, he and 16 of the group returned to duty in the Regiment on 19 October, “having declined to join the Transvaal Police”.

Sold with copied pages from QSA medal roll and Regimental Orders.

It was great to see Meurig yesterday for a chat. He reported that on a recent Antique's Roadshow event, a family had brought along a QSA which turned out to be a raised date reverse but that sadly there was no time during the aired programme to include details of it.

That would sound like a new name to add to the list of extant medals. I have asked John Millensted if he knows the recipients's name.
