Boer War Services of Military Officers of the British and Colonial Armies (£85.00 each)

Boer War Services of Military Officers of the British and Colonial Armies, Imperial Yeomanry, Mounted Infantry, Local Units &cc 1899-1902 including Earlier Services

This extensive volume is comprised from scarce official contemporary publications which have been selected to achieve the most comprehensive listing of Officers’ war services to the end of the Boer War 1899-1902. These services embrace nineteenth century operations prior to the Boer War itself and give details of decorations, medals, any mention-in-despatches with the ‘London Gazette’ date(s).

For example, the entry for Major C.P. Scudamore, Royal Scots Fusiliers traces his services through the Burma expedition 1885-87, Hazara 1888, on the North West Frontier 1897-98, Tirah 1897-98, through to South Africa 1899-1902; whilst that for Captain A.L. Cartwright, Durham Light Infantry shows his only service in West Africa 1900.

The volume is divided into four sections: War Services of Officers of the Army (British and Indian), arranged alphabetically; War Services of Officers of the Colonial Forces, arranged alphabetically by country including Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, (Cape of Good Hope, Natal, Transvaal etc) and Ceylon; Lists of Units of Imperial Yeomanry, Mounted Infantry and Colonial Contingents in South Africa together with the names of Officers; and finally a section of appendices including a chronology of the events of the war, statistics of regimental casualties, and casualties by action or operation.
