Back in 2016 we saw the BSACM (1), QSA (3) CC Rhodesia OFS and KSA (2) trio to A V Gosling BSAP ( www.angloboerwar.com/forum/5-medals-and-...-company-medal#45061 )

Currently in eBay is a renamed QSA with copy clasps to this man.



No pictures of the naming. The seller says:

UNFORTUNATELY RENAMED TO

MAJOR A.V.GOSLING B.S.A.POLICE

A GENUINE MEDAL IN NICE CONDITION

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS RENAMED EITHER OFFICIALLY OR UNOFFICIALLY

I would have thought it unlikely to be officially renamed.

No research done to date but I know he is on the roll. If anyone has any information to confirm the claps I would be most grateful, and the price was most reasonable - $200.


Good Morning Goose......

I was passed this on from a member of BMF for your interest.....

A REUNITE......

G'day.

I just spotted a reunite for a member of the Anglo Boer War site and seeing that I'm not a member I thought you might be able to point him in the right direction. Assuming your a member.

18 months ago the member goose posted this: "Found myself a nice QSA to a Bandsman rank with Rhodesia and ROM clasps - Never had one before so a nice addition to the overall collection. 854 Bandsman F Grant - BSAP.

This morning I found his KSA on an American site:

griffinmilitaria.com/product/tw ... ca-police/

I could join the Anglo Boer War site myself, however I only occasionally visit and thought it would be quicker if I could find a Medal Forum member who was already a member. If by chance your not a member just let us know and I'll put out a general request on the forum.

Regards;

Robert..... P.S. I've no connection to the dealer, I was just searching for Bandsman's as I do. :)

Here is a better connection Lot Number 54662......

griffinmilitaria.com/product/two-bar-kin...south-africa-police/

Would make a very good pair.....
