A recent acquisition was this pair to 5143 Pte. James Tillyer of the Manchester Regiment. Whereas many of his comrades were awarded the DoL and Belfast clasps, Tilley was also awarded the Laings Nek clasp. This was authorised later which I suppose is why it is not affixed to the medal.

Mike,

The two clasps are verified on the 1st Manchesters' roll, WO100/198p4.

That appears to be his only entry.

Edward Atkinson. Born 1873, Service papers exist.
