"77 PTE J.D. MAVESTY, LD. STRATHCONA'S H:"
The medal is complete with four Clasps/Bars: "South Africa 1901", "Belfast", "Orange Free State", and "Natal". When researching the Soldier, I noticed that when the Medal was issued a single letter was misspelled ("S" instead of "E") in his name! The Medal is impressed on rim:

77 Pte. John Douglas Maveety (Not Mavesty) was born in Toronto, Ontario, and was a Printer by trade. He enlisted at Prince Albert at age 21 February 9th 1900, for service in South Africa with the Strathcona's Horse. He had sent correspondence to the North West Mounted Police January 30th 1900 regarding his application to serve in South Africa, and later to the Minister of Militia November 20th 1901 regarding the Strathcona's Medals and clasps (please see document images). His documents mention that he was discharged 8-3-1901, and correctly show that he was awarded the Queens Medal with three clasps (Belfast, Orange Free State and Natal) also being awarded the 1901 South Africa Clasp.
