The medal was designed by Princess Henry of Battenberg, whose husband, Queen Victoria's son in law died from catching a fever during the campaign.

The expedition was led by Major - General F.C. Scott against the ASHANTI KING PREMPEH.

Only 2000 stars were awarded to officers and men serving in the African Expedition, these mainly to serving locals. The Britsh soldiers were made up from small detachments of men from a number of British Regiments.

The medals were issued unnamed, but the Colonel of the 2nd Battalion West Yorkshire Regiment had his units names engraved on their medals at his own personal expense.

This was the 4th Anglo /Ashanti conflict but very brief, starting in December 1895 untill February 1896.
