  1. Hi I have just started collecting medals to what I would say is an under estimated unit in the army. I know that they are not a famous line regiment but I feel they certainly should be acknowledged for their commitment to ensuring troops are feed The Catering Corps is a unit that is always working to feed and ensure soldiers are always feed, they don;t have the same down times as other units in the field be it in training or operations and often have to work under very trying environments and conditions, just as their civilian counter parts do as well. Yes they like chefs in the other 2 services often are given a hard time for some of the food they produce, but trust me unless you have been in the situation they often find themselves in and what they have to work with it is not as simple as people think These are what I have been able to collect over the last month or so and will be on the look out for more to the A.C.C. in the coming period regards Caz
  2. Hi Mike great collections something for me to aspire to regards C
  3. Hello Peter and Mike thanks for the information appreciated, I am happy that I have this small group in my collection of growing QSA medals Regards C
  4. Hi all just been trying to research a few of my QSA and have just started on a QSAM BWM, VM group as I am still new to collecting QSA medals is it common for only 1 person to be issued a clasp in a company /battalion? It was issued to: Lieut Eric George JEFFREYS, 87th Company, 22nd Battalion, he also served in the 20th Battalion He joined as a Pte, March 1900 then promoted to L / Cpl in July 1900, then commissioned to Lieut in March 1901 He was listed severely wounded in Heckpoort (I think ) 16th September 1900 what I found interesting is he was the only person in the 87th Company to be issued the South Africa 1901 clasp if I have read the medal rolls correctly He went on to serve with the Northumberland Fusiliers in WW 1 C
  5. Hi I would like to know if it possible to research the NGSM medal roll for the clasp Palestine 1936 - 39 and if so how regards and thanks in advance C
  6. Hi Hugh yes I noticed the same but I have a medal to this unit and have confirmed the clasp on the medal roll. it seems was issued to about 40% of this regiment regards
  7. Hi I am just curious if anyone can assist in how many of the Kaffrarian Rifles would have been issued the Wittebergen clasp and how common is this clasp to South African Units Regards C
  8.
