This regiment, about 4 squadrons strong, was organised in 1901, the command being given to Major A B Baker, DSO.
The regiment saw a good deal of service in Cape Colony at a time when glory was very hard to harvest, but they did useful work in worrying and running down small commandos, and they seem to have kept out of serious mishaps. They were still engaged with scattered bodies of the enemy when peace was declared, and had sharp fighting thirty-six miles east of Fraserburg on 3rd June 1902, actually four days after the declaration. The commandos had apparently not taken the news seriously, if these had reached the neighbourhood. On this last occasion Squadron Sergeant Major Carter and 3 men were killed, and Lieutenant F L Whalley and 1 man were wounded.
QSA are listed under the Duke of Edinburgh's Own Volunteer Rifles. For example 777 SSM TR Carter is listed on the casualty roll as CLH and listed on the QSA roll under 2nd DOEVR (WO100/242p5).
There are KSA listed under the unit title CLH.
