Not July 19th, but 11 days earlier, like the Scots Guards and Grenadier Guards, the 2nd King's Royal Rifle Corps at Fort William in India was ordered by telegram to hold itself in readiness for possible active service in South Africa. In spite of "the strong desire for settlement", there were many people expecting the worst long before the war started.

1901 - Cecil Rhodes and Dr. Jameson arrive in Southampton.

....Mr Cecil Rhodes and Dr Jameson arrived at Southampton yesterday afternoon in the Kinfauns Castle from South Africa. A number of friends were waiting to receive him, including Mr Hawkesley, his solicitor; Mr Jones, secretary of the Chartered Company; Mr Beit, Mr Maguire, and Mr Charles Boyd. As soon as the steamer came alongside the wharf these gentlemen went on board, and were received by Mr Rhodes in the saloon. Subsequently the party proceeded to London in a special saloon attached to the mail train, arriving in town at half-past six o'clock. Mr Rhodes declined to make any statement for publication, but one of his friends informed a representative of the Central News that the right hon. gentleman's visit to England was of a purely private and business character, and in no way connected with politics. Having transacted certain necessary business in London, Mr Rhodes proposed to go to Perthshire with Dr Jameson for a holiday, leaving town on August 11 or 12.

1902 - 500 Reservists of the Grenadier Guards arrived back in London.

....On Saturday afternoon five hundred of the Grenadier Guards, who returned to England by the City of Vienna, arrived at Wellington Barracks to be disbanded. Their welcome home was of an enthusiastic character. The men, all time-expired soldiers, were reservists of the 3rd Battalion. They marched through the crowded streets, headed by their band, to the barracks, Major the Hon. C. Leigh being in command.
