A clasp inscribed "Wittebergen" will be granted to all troops who were inside a line drawn from Harrismith to Bethlehem, thence to Senekal and Clocolan, along the Basuto border, and back to Harrismith, between July 1st and 29th, 1900, both dates inclusive.

A nice image of what a single clasp Wittebergen would look like.

This QSA to 2378 Pte. J. Sheridan, Leins. Regt. is missing CC & Tr and KSA (2).

QSA (1) Wittebergen (Guide J. W. Archbell. F.I.D.) officially re-impressed naming.

The Wittebergen clasp is listed on the FID roll WO100/201p31 with no other clasps identified.

There is a query on whether this man served in the Harrismith VLH, number 105.

The Archbell on the Harrismith roll (WO100/281p163) has initial F and the clasps OFS and SA01. A note says the SA02 clasp was recovered as he was not entitled. There is nothing on the HVLH roll to link the two.
