CQMS F.C. Dolman, Kimberley Town Guard is my latest reunite. I've had his QSA for about 25 years but recently came across (and snapped up!) his contemporarily privately engraved Kimberley Star. Dolman was Quarter Master Sergeant of 'G' Company under Captain Holliday.

Coincidentally, some years ago I had a similar reunite for a man in the Loyal North Lancs.

Congratulations, David! The re-unite was well worth the long wait, and it must be very satisfying. I am guessing of course, since I have yet to have a re-unite experience!
Regards
Brett
