There is a Wepener QSA named to the ILH selling on BoB later today.

It may be the image but the naming looks curious to me:



The QSA is also anomalous in having OFS and Wepener clasps.

Earned his Wepener with 1st Brabant's and also saw service with the CinC Bodyguard

The OFS clasp earned with 2nd ILH but crossed out on the roll?

Baffling but commanding a very handsome price in Rand terms

He certainly should not have OFS on his medal.

There are a few Wepeners to the ILH and it is the case that men went to many different units having served at Wepener.

The letters on the rim looked larger than I would expect but this must be an illusion caused by the reflection and shadow?
