I am in possession of a good luck medalion slightly smaller than a 1/2 Penny. One one side is the head of Queen Victoria with the inscription around the perimiter "British Transval War 1899-1900". The reverse side shows a mounted trooper with the horse shown coming to a sudden halt. The inscription is "Good luck to Australian Bushmans Corps 1900". Does anyone have knowledge of this medalion and were they issued to the troops.
