Q.S.A. Medal Clasps - seeking advice on missing clasps

Recommended Posts

Some years ago, I acquired, as a gift from a friend, two Q.S.A. medals, and both with no clasps. Now, I have done my research on these two medals, and I even have actual copies of the original handwritten regimental medal rolls, for both. And, as you might expect, both QSAs are entitled to a number of clasps, confirmed.

So, here are the details :

To: 8206 Pte J. Johnston 1st Highland Light Infantry (the 71st) Missing clasps are: Cape Colony; Wittebergen; S.A. 1901 (not entitled to a K.S.A.)

and, also,

To: 133 Tpr Francis George Hollington, 2nd Victoria Mounted Rifles. Missing clasps are : Cape Colony; Rhodesia; S.A. 1901. (not entitled to a K.S.A.)

Now obviously, I would like to replace the clsaps. And so, in summary, I will require: 2 x Cape Colony; 2 x S.A. 1901 and one each of Wittebergen and

Rhodesia. Naturally, original clasps would be best, failing that, good quality copies, until (hopefully) originals can be obtained.

DO ANY GROUP Members know of a good, reliable source / supplier who may be able to assist me. I have obviously found some suppliers of copy

clasps on the interent, but as I have not yet approached them, I cannot say if they are reliable, nor if their copies are of decent quality. I know that in

the past, Dixon Medals used to deal in replacement clasps, but I see that their website no longer shows a section for clasps.


Thank you.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
