Hi David
It was in your discussion on Rodda's Silver Medal:


QSA (0) (60 PM Sgt H Rodda Nam TG), Cape Copper Company Medal for the Defence of O'okiep, silver issue (H Rhodda). Rhodda was the paymaster for the O’okiep Copper Company and it was presumably due to the important and senior status of his employment that he was entitled to, and received, the silver issue of the O’okiep medal. Harry Rodda is shown in a group photograph of a cricket team in O’okiep in 1890 and was obviously a longstanding resident and employee of the mine. His father was employed as one of the first mine captains. Lieutenant Joseph Burrows, who was destined to later also qualify for and receive the silver O’okiep medal is also shown in this photograph. The silver issue of the O’okiep Copper Company medal is a rarity with a total of only 10 such awards known to exist. Only five examples of the silver O’okiep medal paired with a QSA medal, including this pair to Pay Master Rodda, are known to exist. City Coins Sep 03.
