As previously reported in posts 57994,57995 & 58017 in this thread, Dooly Bearer Khayoo's medal was auctioned in the auction rooms of Dix, Noonan & Webb last September. The medal seemed unfancied and now is in my collection of Dooly Bearers who were at Talana, via a dealer, to whom it was hammered.
789 Dooly Bearer Khayoo S & T Corps
Bangalore District Supply and Transport Corps


I have learnt how to download files from the Indian Digital Archive so here is evidence of the, missing three clasp I.G.S.Medal & evidence of service at Talana.








And finally the return to India after nine months of service in South Africa


Looking for Salutries, Salootries and Veterinary Duffadars.
I collect primarily QSAs to Indian Recipients.

Available on BoB at present.

QSA (0) (176 Blacksmith. Mohamed Bux - Mule and Transport Corps)

The medal roll shows that he was entitled to 3 clasps - Transvaal , Tug Heights , Defence of Ladysmith , but unfortunately clasps were never supplied with the Bronze medals .

The medal is correctly named but quite difficult to read as they were all lighty engraved
