QSA (0) (Mr. W.O. Scott, "Illustrated London News")

Mr. Scott was a 'War Artist' for the above paper and as such is rare, having had five War Correspondents over the years, this is the first War Artist I have seen.

Interestingly, there were a lot fewer correspondents in China and one received a clasp.

China (1) Relief of Pekin (Mr William Whittall. War Correspondent)

William Whittall represented Reuter's Agency during the Boxer Rebellion. He is the only one of the ten war correspondents in China to receive a clasp to his medal. Nothing else is known of him. Sold with photocopy China Medal Roll page which confirms entitlement and photocopy page from China Expeditionary Force Orders naming Whittall among five Press Correspondents to accompany the force.
