Walter Elsdon served on HMS Naiad from the 19th of March 1901 until the 17th of September the following year, but, I would question the merits of any additions at a later date.

There were 120 SA01 clasps and no SA02 clasps to HMS Naiad.

The medal roll (ADM171/53p303) shows entitlement to CC and SA01.

That's a nice set of medals, Mike. It would be easy to see these as the awards of one man.
