GVF or better. The clasps on the QSA are loose as a block of three on the ribbon of the medal but not fixed to the suspender as the QSA & Clasps were issued to the recipient at different dates. The ribbons on the trio are on the incorrect medals but I personally have no intention of changing them after 100 years in family hands. Complete with MIC & medal roll details along with details from both SDGW & the CWGC
