The naming on Martin's medal is crisp and almost mint - they seldom come to market looking that good. Now to find his QSA!

O'okiep bronze medal (T.P Martin). Named in impressed capitals as per the correct naming

He is on the QSA roll - 87. Pte T.P Martin (and engaged the enemy).

Good morning Rory.

Yes the naming was absolutely crisp and mint . I include a picture for easy reference.
Would be fantastic to find his QSA but alas I'm not blessed with that kind of luck.

These medals are my great grandfather’s brothers. His name was John Charles Townsend Trent. The nephew of William Webster Townsend.
Please can you advise how the family can get the medals returned to them.
Best regards
Desiree Trent
