It is perhaps interesting to note that Robert Jobson's bronze QSA shows just that; his name. However, Chef P.Batice's medal carries the title "Mr".

Just now I was trawling through the roll of the 10H for a possible link in the Pte. Turtle Memorial post, when I spotted the following on p.189 of WO 100/189:


The entry concerns civilian servant Charles Cable who went to SA with a senior officer. It does not say anything about the issue of a Bronze medal; however it does mention Cable's being captured at Sanna's Post. By the way, I could not find a confiriming entry in Palmer.

However, the entry for Charles Cable on my trusty "Cavalry CD" shows Cable as "Civilian servant 10th H' and awarded a Bronze medal. Incidentally Charles Cable is noted as PoW at Sanna's Post - with a query - and "released 5/6/01.

The QSA to W Lineham has been added to the list. This was part of the 1978 Lovell collection, lot 910.
