A clasp was instituted in 1919, as published in Army Order no. 361 of 16 October 1919. Awarded to those who had received the 1914 Star, the clasp, together with two small silver roses, was awarded to those who had served under fire or who had operated within range of enemy mobile artillery in France or Belgium during the period between 5 August and 22 November 1914. Altogether 378,000 1914 Star medals were awarded. Approximately 145,000 clasps were issued, although the exact number is unknown since the clasp had to be claimed personally by the recipients, of whom a large number had either died before 1919 or neglected to apply.
