Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

At £1049 already and 8 days to go.
Extraordinary for a soldier who saw no action!
Also has later style naming. Note 1-24th as opposed to the original 1/24th.

I get the higher prices for the 1877- 8-9 clasp medals to men of 1/24th who were not in those companies at iSandlwana. The men in S.Africa for several years had become battle hardened veterans, but I do not get the higher prices to the replacement men of the 24th who arrived post iSandlwana, the later draft recipients who were sent in to replace those members of 1/24th who'd been killed.

you know my vies on this - it just does my head in - I am sure there are some people on Ebay who think they are buying an Isandlwanan casualty or comrade of one . Thats the advantage of a an informed market and careful wording on the lot.

But it is not just an ebay thing - some really good and trustworthy dealers have these medals on their sites (as 90th points out) at similar pricing. I have never got it - but I think it is no coincidence that these medals stay on lists for longer while other SAGS are snapped up .

I hope at some point that the laws of supply and demand take effect !!
