Hello members,
I have come across a QSA with OFS, Rhodesia & CC which is engraved as per image to 52042 G. D. PARKINSON. E.R.A. NAVAL BRIGADE.
I cant find his name on this site and am not sure about the naming style which is chisel engraved I think.
Any clues will be greatly appreciated
Thanks

Hi ,
This QSA with OFS, Rhodesia & CC is chisel engraved in capitals which doesn't seem to be correct.
Pic attached. Any clues appreciated.

Yes, that QSA to Naval Brigade is definitely re-engraved. There were very few Rhodesia clasps awarded to the RN; Fevyer and Wilson list just eight. Re the naming on your medal, RN medals to officers were often engraved and the many RN QSAs to enlisted personnel were impressed.

IL.

GM,

I agree with IL that this is a renamed medal.

You should be able to see that the rim is thinner where the renaming has taken place.

I saw this medal in an auction in Adelaide a couple of weeks ago and did not bid on it for three reasons.
1. I could not find him on Ancestry medal rolls
2. I thought all naval QSA.s were named to ships
3. The Rhodesia bar also put me off
