For those who can't get enough of medals, here are a couple of photos of the section of the Yorkshire Regiment (Green Howards) medal room showing South Africa 1899-1902 medals.

I also saw, but neglected to photograph, the VC and QSA ( Relief of Kimberley, Paardeberg) to Alfred Ainsworth. Citation shown in the VC section on this site

The medal room is amazing, with floor to ceiling display cases on all walls, and the museum itself, in Richmond, North Yorkshire, is excellent. Highly recommended.

IGS 1854 (1) Kachin Hills 1892-93 (2316 Private M. Benny 2nd Bn P.W.O. Yorkshire Regt.);
QSA (6) Relief of Kimberley, Paardeberg, Driefontein, Johannesburg, Diamond Hill, Belfast (2316 Pte. M. J. Benney, Yorkshire Regt.)

Approximately 116 ‘Kachin Hills 1892-93’ clasps issued to the 2nd Battalion, The Prince of Wales’ Own Yorkshire Regiment, the only British regiment employed during these operations. Whilst many of these medals were issued with officially re-engraved naming, this example is perfect in all respects.
