My figures from 2008 were similar to Jon's. I calculated 191 combinations of Elandslaagte and RoM.

Good evening Sepsop.

And I have the QSA / KSA to Cpl Spear as we discussed a while ago. Beautiful, to know we at least have the man's medals and they are not lost or missing.

MID Lord Roberts, 4 September 1901.

Arthur Curtis was a native of Plymouth. In 1914 he tried to rejoin the Devon Regiment but was rejected on grounds of age. Eventually he served in India as Regimental Sergeant-Major of the 1st Garrison Battalion, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, which was formed in February 1916. Sold with a cabinet photograph of Curtis in the uniform of the Devons, and copied Medal Index Card which confirms entitlement to BWM only.
