I was wondering if anyone here could decipher this for 1941 Thomas James Hetherington of the Scotts Railway Guards. Any other info would be fantastic.

Here is my attempt - and assuming your cut came from the SRG roll; re "1941Pte. Hetherington, J.F.", medal returned ?/1/08, apparently an application for reissue and a search of records on 2/5/22. Medal reissued 11/5/22 and presumably with a State Clasp (unclear which) and date clasp "SA 1902". It appears your man also served in the Western LH. There is a bit of overlapping with the man shown on the roll next to Hetherington - so you might care to check the roll entries on this site under the heading Research at the National Archives.
Good luck with your re4search.
IL.

Many thanks, yes it was from the SRG roll. I didn’t know he also served in the Western LH. Much appreciated

In addition to WO100, I would suggest a careful look throughout WO126/127-129 and WO126/165 at Kew for any surviving papers, the Western Light Horse is particularly interesting as it was extant for such a short period of time, certainly from memory, at least, it had only been raised at Vryburg on the 9th of April 1902, so Vereeniging was quite literally in sight.
Anyway, I wish you bon chance if you take matters further.

I’m afraid that I am unable to visit Kew to view the records. Hopefully they will digitise these records
