Mitchell, gave an address at the 6th SA Numismatic Convention in Durban ,5-10 July 1976.

He stated then as follows:

DISTINGUISHED CONDUCT MEDAL: NATAL:

As I have said, the overwhelming majority of the D.C.M.'s awarded to Colonials during the Anglo-Boer War were of the Imperial pattern.
Only two exceptions are known. Abbot and. Tamplin describe a Canadian D.C.M. of the "trophy of arms" Victorian issue, named to Corporal T. Callaghan, 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles. Callaghan was awarded the D.C.M. for services in the Anglo-Boer War, and his name appears in the London Gazette of 27th September, 1901.

Regards
Adrian


I have handled and photographed this medal...... It is located in the Glenbow Museum in Calgary but I cannot remember if it is "Trophy of Arms" or not...... The major thing that I do remember is that with regards the medal naming his name is spelt wrong it is "Gallaghan" on the medal...... Will look into it when I return from my holiday......

Siege of Mafeking soup ration card It was late 1899 – war was imminent in South Africa. Colonel Baden Powell had been ordered by Britain to set up a military base in the border town of Mafeking. Psychologically affected by the fact that it was from here that the Jameson Raid was launched. The Boers determined to regain this key town. It started an epic 7 and a half months siege. After 6 months by March 1900. The town was famished. Death and destruction from the daily bombardments added to disease and starvation of the 9000 men, women, children, blacks and whites that were trapped. Horse meat soup kitchens started up to feed the population.

Is there any way I can find out who bought the medals for my wife's grandfather R C Verley as we have most of his other Boer War memorabilia and would like to find these medals?

Your best method is to contact Michael Kaplan and ask if he will forward your email on to the buyer.

I don't think there have been any Kaplan auctions so far in 2017 which is usual. Is that the case or have I been missing them?
