Yes, I have been acquiring medals just not QSA's, been concentrating on medals of later decades. However I like battles where the artillery had a hand in turning the battle and Modder River was one of those. Been after a 62nd for awhile, missed a few as I do not purchase from overseas only locally. Could not resist this one when it came up near where I live. I have a Colenso QSA entitled to the same medal combo BUT sadly I only have the QSA.
If all goes well I too will also be relocating to the fair Cape within a few years. Adrian and I will be virtually neighbours living only a few km's apart.
