South African Medal

The South African medal was awarded to the Worshipful Company of Fletchers on 30 August 1901 in recognition of its assistance in raising and equipping the City of London Imperial Volunteers during the South African War (1899-1902).  Despite being the smallest and poorest of all the City Livery Companies at the time, the Fletchers managed to contribute £25 towards the total raised by the City Companies.

The clasps are: Belfast, Wittebergen, Diamond Hill, Johannesburg, Driefontein, Paardeberg and Cape Colony.
