I'd have to have a proper look, I ended you with a lot of titles from South Africa, you will find two distinctive fittings on the reverse of the numerals and both the DG and separate D and G, the...

The usual title was indeed a two or three piece one, a separate D and G or a single DG with separate numeral are the norm and I've encountered both many times, for the Corps of Dragoon Guards,...

He is shown in the appendix of Tyneside Scottish by Graham Maddocks and John Sheen in the nominal roll of the 23rd Battalion, it gives his hometown as "Burnhopefield" full address not given, I assume...

Perfectly simple question, was the sale subsequently cancelled, annulled, rescinded?
Perhaps just for absolute clarity, can you confirm exactly why the lot was spurious?
