Comments

Five clasps were authorised, though the maximum awarded to any one man was four.[5] The medal was issued without a clasp to those who served but were not eligible for a clasp. The vast majority of these awards were made to those who became entitled to the medal as a result of the 1868 extensions of eligibility.
