Evening Gents

After about 20 years of collecting and being hampered, as we all are, by financial constraints and the availability of suitable items to fill gaps, I was able to complete my Natal Carbineers collection with these two examples. Be patient Frank!!
I have casualties to a NC at Colenso, at Ladysmith as well as a double issue amongst the several in my collection. The Natal units allows one to collect a wide assortment of clasp combinations and I hope that these two show that they are out there, you just have to be patient.

These two, are to:
202 TPR R. SPENCER : NATAL CARBNRS, TALANA, DOL, TVL, LN, SA1901

171 SERJT C.A. CARBUTT : NATAL CARBNRS, ELANDS, DOL, TVL, LN
(this one with good provenance judging by the affixed sticker...)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Jon

Those QSA's are as good as they get for the Carbineers. Thank you for showing them. An Elandslaagte medal has eluded me, so I am very envious of your good fortune.

Hi Frank

just looking through this whole topic and saw this, fantastic, this combo has eluded me, I have a BMR to the DEFENCE OF LADYSMITH and oddly enough one with a NATAL and TVL bar. Like the way you combine the badge with the medal, it is something that I also like to do.
