HMS Terrible 'Double Relief'

After service in the Boer War, HMS Terrible was redeployed to China in 1900.  Some of her crew thereby gained entitlement to the Relief of Ladysmith clasp in the Boer War and the Relief of Pekin clasp in China.

This is a list of those men.  My thanks to David Humphry for this information.
