Last noted as been hammered for £110 in 2005 by the same auction rooms.
Looking for Salutries, Salootries and Veterinary Duffadars.
I collect primarily QSAs to Indian Recipients.

The Canadian 2nd Mounted Rifles in the background as this and the other pictures were taken from a member of the 2nd CMR photo album.....

Seeing that the gentleman in the pic has a sword, the "rifle" would actually be a .303" Martini-Enfield Cavalry Carbine (possibly Martini Metford). He also appears to be wearing a very decent strip of medal ribbons.
