The continued use of your term "viewing pleasure" manages to make it sound really quite indecent! :)

Gentlemen
I should have noticed this before; It was quite possible for troops to receive both "RHODESIA" clasps and "RELIEF OF MAFEKING" clasps on their QSA if they so qualified. To quote directly from the preliminary notes in S.M.KAPLANs "Medal Roll for the Relief of Mafeking" (nd):
"It is important to note that the restriction on the grant of the bar "RHODESIA" to those awarded the bar "RELIEF OF MAFEKING" (as laid down by Army under 94 of April 1901) was cancelled by Army Order 171 of 1902. Thus the combination "RHODESIA" and "RELIEF OF MAFEKING" is quite genuine."

IL.
