Private Fred Outram, of the (Duke of Wellington's) West Riding Regiment, was invalided home to North Derbyshire, in early 1902,, after being "injured at gun drill."

Writing from Reitfontein, on April 24th, 1900, Private W. Driscoll [unknown regiment] said " . . . a couple of strange things that happened while we were on the Guelph, coming from Cape Town to Durban. One chap of the Durhams broke his arm while drawing a cork from a bottle, and one of our chaps fell through the hatchway into the hold and did not hurt himself at all. That seems rather strange."

Sapper C. H. Brocklehurst, a Crewe Engineer Reservist, writing home, said "I am on the sick list with an injured eye. It is going on all right. I hurt it while catching a goat for supper. I had just collared her, when my foot slipped on a stone, and I fell with my eye on the goat's horns."
The Crewe Guardian, Saturday 6th January 1900
