I recently acquired this pair and am looking for the KSA to complete the group. I believe the KSA is named to him as 429 Battery Sergeant Major A. Scott, Canadian Scotts.
Pair: Corporal A. Scott, Canadian Scouts
Queen’s South Africa 1899-1902, 4 clasps, Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Transvaal, Laing’s Nek
429 Corpl: A. Scott. Canadian Scouts; Coronation 1902, bronze, unnamed as awarded.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, John
Thank you very much David! It’s very nice to have an idea of his appearance and the original document confirming that he was in the coronation contingent. I wonder what it was like? What ship did they sail on? Where did they lodge? Where were they located in the parade? I believe the Canadian Scouts marched on the first day of the three days of events. The Indian regiments the second etc. Is there anything available regarding the parade line up?
I noticed in the National Archives two weeks ago that there are large volumes on the bookshelves relating to the 1902 Coronation. I will have a look next time I visit to see whether these contain any plans.
