Hi Gary

Quite a few medal dealers and bookstalls - I didn't see a single AZW medal for sale though! Some stunning private collections - one chap had a series of groups to WW2 reconnaissance unit commanders all including MMs, must have taken him years to accumulate. The photos I posted were just a small part of a South African collection. I bought a book with an interesting AZW connection - will post later.

Steve

Thank you for sharing the pictures with us. It is a fantastic collection and I am very envious!

Regards
Brett

PS The latest issue of the South African Military History Journal (Volume 18, Number 2) has in it an article entitled ' Isandlwana and a four letter word' by Charles Aikenhead, which I enjoyed. I look forward to reading the reactions of others interested in the subject that will undoubtedly appear on this forum in time.

My daughter's phone camera is better than mine! This gilt Zululand Mounted Rifles badge is stunning. The guy had six large displays like this for all the SA regions, as well as the helmets. Some folks have bottomless pockets!

Yes some excellent stuff for sure , the Medals aren't easy to find like they once were . I saw the same type of Badge display in the Old Fort Museum in Durban , with Ken Gillings on my first African trip back in 2014 , wonderful badges . I did manage tompick up a Natal Carbs Helmet Plate as worn during the AZW last week , seems to be an original , well the other two bidders thought it was as well ! .

Although the Zululand Mounted Rifles existed for only a short time, it had a reputation second to none in the 1906 Bhambatha Rebellion. Medals and badges of the ZMR are hard to come by.
