A clasp inscribed "Relief of Kimberley” will be granted to all troops in the relief column under Lieutenant-General French who marched from Klip Drift on February 15th, 1900, and all the 6th Division under Lieutenant-General Kelly-Kenny who were within 7,000 yards of Klip Drift On February 15th,1900.
At the Fair yesterday, Philip Burman was showing a QSA (1) RoK to 8534 Sgt Louis ASC. There was no information available to confirm the clasp but subsequent checking has confirmed that RoK is not his sole entitlement. Shame as the QSA was in great condition.
