I bought the QSA to De Bourbel about 2017 from E.Bay Aus for a very good price, he apparently had a New Zealad conection. I sold it sometime later to Grant Morton of I.S.Wright in Adelaide to partially fund putting a headstone on my Granmothers grave which had been unmarked for about 60 years. Several other items I sold to him over a period of time including a 7 battle bar QSA nd KSA to the Coldstream Guards are in the same auction. I.S.Wright in Adelaide closed their doors on the 30th of June this year.
