QSA medal inscibed with name but unknown unit


Recommended Posts

Hello readers.

I am in need of assistance regarding a QSA campaign medal with clasps

- South Africa 1901,

- Wittebergen,

- Transvaal,

- Cape Colony.

The rim bears the name 8718 PTE C.P. Grindley, Scots CDS.

My questions because for me unknown collection area:

- is this a likely combination?

- what does Scots CDS stand for?

And lastly would this be desireable?

Price given as Euro 180.

Thank you for any help.

Hello Bernard......

Looks ok to me......

The unit is Scots Guards....... Should be a GDS

Not a bad price for a Guards Brigade medal.......

This medal would be Impressed Naming and not Engraved........

Hello:

A thank you to all who responded so quickly. Another look at the photo of the rim inscription would allow a G rather than a C.

I have made some purchases from Straube Orden in Germany with whom this medal is listed and have been satisfied in every respect.

Thanks again.
