Ian, in the unlikely event that was just a guess, it was certainly a good one!

How about "Farrier and Carriage Smith"? I recall seeing businesses out in the bush, ages ago, so titled.

It was no guess. This particular trade was widely advertised in towns both small and medium during my hunting trip days.
Posting the reply to Mike's initial query brought a smile to my face.
Great memories.

Okay Ian, well, I thought not, it was certainly a very important trade back in the day.

Baldwin's are listing a single QSA (1) CC named to a Civilian Clerk in the ASC (Civ: Clk: J Haynes ASC). ASC medals named to Mr or with no rank/title certainly exist and I wonder how common is this rank?
