I would like to have a replica medal made for my Husband, his Grandfather Percy Richard Cuming was awarded the Queens South Africa Medal with five clasps. How do I find out which five clasps he was awarded?

Did he serve with the 4th Queensland Mounted Infantry/Imperial Bushmen?

That is the only PR Cuming on the medals on Ancestry.

This man earned four, not five, clasps - Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Transvaal and South Africa 1901.

The Australian War Memorial site has more information on individuals: www.awm.gov.au/
