By the time I'd stopped dithering and decided to buy it 90th, it had already been sold. Hardly surprising really - possiby a unique set of items. I have a mint SAG in its original named box of issue, as good as the day it was issued, but this group trumps that imo.

I also trie dto buy it and just missed out. As you know the 17th is my passion was very sad to miss this lot.

BTW back after having been laid up for a while with a particularly nasty injury ( what idiot invented Vets rugby!!). What have I missed on the medal front?

Will update the lancer list as I have been able to acquire details and a couple of new medals.

Welcome back SD; playing rugby at your age? Salute Joker Salute Joker Salute sounds like you've been trying to mix it up with those bad Welsh boys in the front row! :p;:
Nothing huge has happened on the medal front, other than by the sounds of it, you ending up with a runner's up medal!

Haha Tasker - I know some form or Mid life crisis i expect. Mrs D was well pleased still who wants to decorate anyway Very Happy

The irony was it wasnt the welsh - formidable opponents that they can be - but it was a touring South African team . Its been a long time since I was on the wrong end of a spear tackle - I thought that was a Kiwi thing.

Still i had plenty of time to read a number of Zulu war books I have stored up although the size of the Harford and a soldier artist in Zululand proved prohibitive for reading- but useful for my physio.

Good to be back

South Africans? Spear tackle?
We call it a traditional method of introduction. :p;:

yes Springbok - I think in the SA rugby rule book it is just called a tackle!!

personally I call it a miracle that he was strong enough to lift me up off the ground in the first place.

Even more annoying was apparently I missed an incredible post match drinking session complete with the South African Meat Companys - selection of Wurst and Biltong!!!

I dont think the hospital food was a patch on a nice bit of dried Kudu!!
