CGHGSM (2) BASUTOLAND BECHUANALAND (CAPT.W.M.SCHENK CAPE POLICE D.I.
[ QSA (2) CC OFS Captain ]
[ KSA (2) Captain ]

The write-up says:

MID 10th September, 1901.

We note that he is on the roll for the South Africa Medal and entitled to the clasp 1878.

W.M. Shenk is on the Roll of the Cape Mounted Riflemen on the Cape of Good Hope General Service Medal, entitled to the Basutoland and Bechuanaland clasps.

Medals are about good very fine, the Cape Medal has a small area of erasure, where the rank has been changed from SERGEANT to CAPT. and the W is re-engraved
