The medals are not mounted this way so there is no reason to photograph them in this order unless you do not know the correct order.

QSA (4) Belmont, Modder River, Orange Free State, Transvaal (Tpr: R. Stent. Damant's Horse.);
KSA (2) (Lieut: R. W. T. Stent. S.A.M.I.F.);
1914-15 Star (Pte. R. W. T. Stent Standerton Cdo.);
British War and bi-lingual Victory Medals (S/Sjt R. W. T. Stent. S.A.M.C.)

Spink say 'Reginald William Theodore Stent was born in England in June 1878 and served initially during the Boer War with Damant's Horse. He was wounded in action at Colesburg on 8 February 1900 and was also taken a Prisoner-of-War during the conflict. Having been released from Pretoria on 23 May 1901 [sic], he saw further service during the Great War and died on 11 August 1939 at Pretoria.'
