Novice question - Does this mean that it could be awarded even if they did not participate in the actual relief? ie just by being in Northern Natal between those dates? thanks Darryl

The clasp "Relief of Ladysmith" was " granted to all troops in Natal North of and including Estcourt between 15 December 1899 - 28 February 1900 inclusive". All those troops were deemed to have contributed to the success of the Ladysmith relief.
