As you know I have done a fair amount of research on the 17th Lancers, This medal seems "wrong" in a few areas - it has a 1877-8-9 bar - to my knowledge only 1879 bar issued to the Lancers. There is no trumpeter on the rolls called campbell - and the only cambell was a Private W Campbell.

The medals should be to the 17th DCO lancers.

As always caveat emptor - this could be a rare and unusual medal - but had a check for the service records and couldnt find any - seems to me one to keep away from.

Hi Sergio.
Agree 100 % , all the Lancer's medal clasps were 1879 , except one to Farrier Sgt H.Dyer 974 , in the roll it states ; see also Frontier Light Horse , which would account for his 78 - 79 Clasp, although looking in the FLH Roll he's down as an 1879 Clasp ?? , so it's a mystery why he is listed in the Lancer Roll as having an 1878 -79 Clasp . Certainly , there is only one Campbell in the roll , which you have stated.
Cheers 90th.

The responce from Ashbeys

We contacted a very big medal collector, and he confirmed that the medal is indeed real and the information correct.
We will however, get another opinion.

Thank you for notifying us.

Kind regards

Thanks Springy - an interesting response - I wonder what a big Medal collector is - I have a pretty extensive medal collection - but I dont get many auctioneers asking my opinion:( 

If there was some eveidence of Service this would be an absolutely unique medal and as such value £1500 +- i just dont see it.

Justin at Jager medals might have seen this and know about it. - but I shall pass.


90th I think you will find that the Dyer medal is to the 16th Lancers - these are very scarce only 7 as far as I know to the 16th .

Will be interested to see what the trumpeter sells for.

Cheers
Sergio

Sergio
I think when they describe him as a B IG medal collector they mean someone over 6'6".
Ive replied to the lady, politly, and sent her a link to this conversation.
They are now in a difficult situation because they have been informed that there is a potential 'mistake' with the medal. If they knowingly sell it and it is dodgy they will contravene the the South African Consumer Protection Act. And thats a pretty powerful act to butt heads against.
We shall see.

Cheers
