From tomorrow's auction at Spink. I will buy a hat and eat it if this medal goes for the estimate.

QSA (3) DoK OFS Tr (3981 Cpl. A. Dyer, 1st. L.N. Lanc: Regt.)

Estimate: £80 to £100

It is certainly a rather conservative estimate, notwithstanding, I dare say the missing KSA would rule it out for some collectors.
Still an interesting recipient, I note he was convicted by Court Martial at Dronfield after the awful siege and "reduced to the ranks" as a direct result.

The QSA to Bolitho managed a hammer price of £1,700.

No mention in the auction room of the incorrect listing. Presumably the purchaser knows it is not a Defence of Mafeking QSA?

Sounds like the local millinery concerns are feeling a degree safer today!
