Hi David
Ancestry has his initials as J I Colley
Lance Corporal Nesbitts Horse 1901 Clasp. Notes - moved to Cape Police
Trooper 154 Nesbitts Horse J Colley crossed out. Notes - Protectorate Regiment
Trooper 154 James Colley Protectorate Regiment Frontier Force, D Squadron.
Defence of Mafeking, Orange Free State & Transvaal.
You probably have all that info? but the handwriting does look like Innes.
Regards
Dave
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Best regards,
Dave

David - It looks to me like 72. It might refer to entry number 72 in the Attestation Book (A.B.).
