This clasp was granted in 1903 for the Munshi Expedition (4th January -19th May 1900) in Northern Nigeria. These expeditions arose from the need to ensure the safe passage for caravans and abolition of the slave trade.
This clasp 1900 was the last one to be issued and is scarcer than one thinks particularly to officers and N.C.O.s.
The 1st Northern Nigerian regiment were issued only 180 so this is a rare medal.
