    Boer War and WW1 Service Medals 3 groupings

    Offered for sale as a complete group, here are pics of three sets of service medals I've owned since the late 60's and early 70's. They are principally from soldiers who fought in the Boer and WW1 (The Great War). British service medals prior to WWII, were often named (impressed) on their rims (as these all are ... see more detailed pics) with the soldier's name, rank and unit in which he was serving when he was awarded the medal.



    Captain Leslie George de Rune Barclay (Born on Oct 3,1879 - Died Feb 1, 1965 at age 85). He fought in the Boer War and WW1 (Royal Irish Rifles) and incredibly, his last medal (on the far right) was the Defence Home Service Medal for serving in the Home Guard during WWII. It's un-named on the rim. Note: He also was awarded the rare BAR to his Mons Star.

    Private J. White (#5247) of the Northumberland Fusiliers. He fought at Belmont and the Modder River, where he was wounded on Nov 28, 1899 and invalided back to Englandicon.

    Colour Sergeant J. Sutherland (#4624) of the Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders. He fought at the Modder River, Paardeberg, Dreifontein and the Transvaal. He received an Honorable "Mention in Dispatches".

    Note: We'd like to request that people refrain from sending us requests to ship items advertised as Local Pickup Only. Sorry, we're too old to be packing and shipping bulky expensive items like this, hoping that nothing gets damaged by the Post Office, or worse, it goes missing.

    If any buyer outside of Canada wishes to acquire this item, they must make their own arrangements for pickup from our location in Canada, as well as agree to assume all responsibility for any shipping and export documentation requirements to their own location.
