King's South Africa Medal to Tpr C.O. Jackson SAC

Recommended Posts

This KSA is my newest addition to my collection.  If anybody can assist with information on the recipient Nr 262 Tpr C.O. Jackson SAC.

I take it the SAC stands for South African Constabulary.  Any help welcomed.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some.
