CCHGSM (1) Bechuanaland (Pte. J. B. Richards, Queenstn. R. Vol.);
QSA (2) Cape Colony, Wittebergen (79 Serjt. J. B. Richards, Queensland (sic) R.V.);
Coronation 1902, bronze

One of seven members of the Queenstown Rifle Volunteers who attended the 1902 Coronation as part of the Cape Colony Contingent.

It appears that these 7 medals were named in time for the coronation and all seven were named to the Queensland RV.

Is Queensland a common typo for Queenstown?
The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
