And from Natal's oldest and best regiment! William Joseph Harcourt's Death Notice is in the Maritzburg Archives and might reveal more about him.

Amazing what a bit of exposure (and let me hasten to add that I have no problem with that) can do to create a level of interest similar medals have not enjoyed and have, consequently, fetched far less.

I didn't bother to bid once I saw the writing was on the wall.
