    oh I see (I think). So the clasps don't necessarily belong with your gg's medal ? (or might or might not ?)

    I must admit, I'm confused about the service number. Which is is? 3022 or 3757, or both (which doesn't make sense to me if he remained with the same regiment).

    The battle of Alma was 20 Sep 1854, and you say 'your' John Scott was "listed as sick on the ship from Sept 1854" If this was on or after 20th then that would make sense for the John Scott No 3098 who only received the clasp for Alma

    As they were all together, I can only assume they were his. They have been passed down from one family member to the next. The family were very poor so unlikely to have bought them. It's always possible that he could have acquired them from a fellow soldier I suppose.

    I employed a researcher who got most of my information from the muster rolls in the National Archives. She quoted two service numbers for John Scott throughout, but I'm unsure why. She was able to disregard John Scott 3098 as he became a corporal and his place of birth was different.
    Thanks for your interest.
