Good Evening Everyone......

These arrived today and am having trouble finding any information......
This is the first QSA to a British unit that I have ever obtained that has no S/N or Regt. Number......

QSA ( Cape Colony )/ KSA ( South Africa 1901 / 1902 )

SERJT. E. T. McGLINN, A.P.O.C.

On the naming of the KSA the small "c" in the last name is missing and scratched in......

Is it possible a miss spelt and should be McGlynn..... Still cannot find anything......

Hi QSA Mike,

I trust this is what you were looking for; I had to page through the roll to find him.

Sturgy

Good Morning and Thank You Sturgy.....

This is a big surprise....... Australian...... No wonder I could not find him he was hidden away in the Colonies......

Looks like he may have been one of a very small number of men from Australia.....

I now have 3 A,P,O,C, from the UK, One from Canada and One from Australia...... Makes me wonder what other colonies provided staff, other than SA of course.....

Thanks Again a great thing to wake up to.......

Mike
