Inspired by Rory's thread on Alfred Jansen , this thread is for other medals to the unit.

Coincidentally, Bonhams sold a nice group to William Watkin Alexander, French's Scouts, today:

QSA (3) RoK Paard Drief (Scout W.W.Alexander. French’s Scts.);
KSA (2) (Scout W.W.Alexander. F.I.D.);
1914-15 Star (Lt. W.W.Alexander Brands F.S Fls.);
BWM and bilingual VM (Lt.W.W.Alexander.)

He served FID 1 Feb 1901 to 30 June 1902.
