Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

If you fancy a cheap Zulu War Medal, this one is going cheap as someone has drilled a hole in the clasp.

hi 24th.
The only clasps available are copies , you can buy them on ebay . You would need to take it to a medal dealer to
have the replacement clasp fitted. it seems they are moulded and fastened.

Gaves1879 The medal never sold. I thought it was at £18.00. Just looked No bids.

On another subject came across this. South Africa Africa Service Medal To Female (W268) First one I have ever seen.

Hi Chelmsfordthescapegoat

I have just checked and you are correct, the medal did not sell and it shows it had no bids scratch
You are correct again as it did have bids on it, I do not know what is going on here Suspect

I do not know much about the South Africa Africa Service Medal, will have a look.

1879Graves.

Can you think of any reasons why the medal might have been withdrawn. (Was there a reserve in-place)

hi all.
This is very reasonable , but he didnt cross into zululand that is why there is no clasp.

Hi Admin

There was no reserve in-place, It looks like he withdrew it just before the end as it was only at £18.00 and did not want to sell the medal at that low price.

Suspect

hi 1879graves,
I didnt think you could withdraw an item from ebay once people had placed bids, but im not
exactly clear on ebay"s policies. It would have been a great bargain for 18 quid.
cheers 90th.

Hi 90th

As a seller, you can withdraw from selling if your reason is you have mis-listed your item and you inform Ebay. People use this option if they do not get enough money for their goods. Ebay know this is a fault but this is the only way to protect the seller from mis-selling an item and getting into trouble.

:lol!: I was one of those people who had placed a bid on this medal, just in case it went cheap. :lol!:
