It's not every day that a re-unite comes my way so I was more than pleased when I saw the KSA to HR Kettles appear on a local online auction site - then it was for me to play a waiting game and not show my hand too early especially seeing as there was quite a bit of interest in the item.

Ten minutes before the end of the auction I could curb my impatience no longer and pounced! Fortunately the other bidders had run out of steam and I was able to re-unite the QSA I have had for the past 10 years to Harry Robert Kettles to his KSA.

Congratulations, Rory! Now for the SA 77-78 Medal that was so carelessly passed back on to the market with no thought of your future needs.
Regards
Brett

Well done Rory. It's always a source of great satisfaction to see medals reunited both from the point of view of the custodian's pleasure and the historical aspect.

That's great Rory, good luck for the trio!

This morning I found a KSA currently for sale, six years I had recorded the QSA (disc only) with a scrap dealer. Who knows if that re-unite will ever be made.
