Good evening all.

Now, before I even start, I need to apologize to QSA Mike who probably has been wondering what ever became of his excellent brilliant good deed that for the past few months (since June 2022) has been left unanswered and ignored. For those who are wondering what the story is, let me give the background and the absolute awesome outcome to my medal collecting.

A person by the name of Robert approached QSAMike ( THANK A MILLION ROBERT - without your eagle eye I would not be writing about this reunite) to let a forum member (me) know that he had spotted a KSA in a military dealer shop in the US. He remembered that I had told the forum about my Bandsman QSA to F. Grant of the BSAP that I had purchased more than 18 months ago. David, had at the time indicated that my Bandsman was missing a KSA through letting me know that the KSA was on a specific roll.

QSA Mike, then being the Scholar and Gentleman (MIKE A HUGE THANK-YOU SHOUT OUT FOR RELAYING THE MESSAGE TO ME - MUCH APPRECIATED), sent me firstly a private note telling me about the KSA and where it was - in fact QSA Mike actually went and found the weblink to the shop and included this in the mail to me. I, in the meantime, who never looks at the private messages option, for some reason, looked at this two weeks ago and saw the message.

To be honest, as quick as a late flash could be, I activated QSA Mike's provided link, found the store, immediately checked the KSA's details and made the purchase. Today, I can rightly say that without this forum, my Bandsman group would never have been reunited. I am never so lucky when it comes to finding the medals I am missing but between Robert and QSA Mike, my medal collection has taken a seriously positive turn. Again, Gents your willingness to share information and your attention to our hobby is absolutely top class and the resultant reunite, provides an additional story to that of my Bandsman. MANY THANKS AGAIN. I have included some pictures showing the orphan QSA and the resultant group unification for your information.

Well done Goose-man!! What a cracking result. Top marks to QSAMIKE as well.....

We would all be the poorer without this sort of brotherly help.
