Frank,

I remember Brian Clark well and occasionally come across one of his paper catalogues. Happy times!

Brett,

You have done a great job there! The badge is a nice addition too.

I had a look for his service papers but I am sorry to report that I could not find them - sorry!

Frank,

I started to collect QSA/KSA Groups as well as WW1 Trio's and WW2 Groups back in the late 70's when I joined the SAAF. QSA Groups were a couple of hundred Rand depending on the clasp combinations and were in plentiful supply at the local pawn shops. WW1 medals were the price of a few liters of petrol. WW2 groups almost given away!!!

Those were the days, pity I didn't earn much in the SAAF!! :angry:

Adrian,
That has always been the problem for all of us I suppose, as time goes by, the stuff gets harder to find and far more expensive!

Adrian and David

Thank you for responding positively to the picture I posted.

David

A special thank you for checking online records for Barker. It is disappointing but, as with the earlier KRRC group, I am pleased to have the medals anyway.

Regards
Brett
