Description:


A potentially interesting ‘official replacement’ Malayan Emergency and Borneo Indonesian Confrontation pair awarded to Sergeant P. Hay, Royal Signals late King’s Own Scottish Borderers, who apparently saw service with the 22nd Special Air Service Regiment from 1955 through to 1967.
General Service Medal 1918-1962, EIIR Dei.Grat. bust; (23247192 PTE P HAY KOSB); Campaign Service Medal 1962, 1 Clasp: Borneo; (23247192 SGT P. HAY. R SIGNALS), with an engraved plaque detailing some of the recipient’s service, and indicating his presence in the Special Air Service Regiment.

Condition: Note latter ‘R’ impressed after naming on each medal denoting official replacement, Extremely Fine. Other than what is stated on the plaque, there is nothing else to prove SAS service, but we have no reason to doubt this information. ‘C. Tesol’ is believed to a teaching qualification.

Peter Hay served initially as a Private (No.23247192) with the King’s Own Scottish Borderers, before transferring to the Royal Signals, and was apparently a member of the 22nd Special Air Service Regiment from 1955 through to 1967, seeing serving in Malaya during the Malayan Emergency, and then later in Borneo during the Indonesian Revolt in the period from 24th December 1962 to 11th August 1966. The only identification of his apparent service with the Special Air Service is engraved on a plaque with which the medals were originally framed reading: ‘Peter Hay B.A. C. Tesol Airborne Forces and 22nd Special Air Service Regiment. (SAS) 1955/1967’.
