A glance at WO128 confirms Scott had joined the IY on the 8th of January 1900, before embarkation upon the 28th of February, he gave his next of kin as J H Scott, Grove House, Filey.
Another lamb to the slaughter house, very sad, just twenty three years old.

It would seem that Thomas Scott's parents had separated, or were living apart, which explains why there are memorials to him in both Filey and South Kilvington.

…."Private T. A. Scott, of the 24th Company of Imperial Yeomanry (Middlesex), whose death from enteric fever has occurred at Winburg, was the son of Mr. Scott, Grove Villa, Filey, and was an ardent supporter of the Filey Cricket Club."
Yorkshire Evening Post, Saturday 5th January 1901


His first application to volunteer had been with the Yorkshire Hussars, so how did he end up in the Middlesex Company?

…."Volunteers continue to send in their names to the various centres of the Yorkshire Hussars, and Regimental-Sergt.-Major Bailey has up to the present received applications from about a hundred and fifty troopers and civilians. Many of these will no doubt fail to pass the medical or shooting tests. At the various centres it is believed that about sixty of the Volunteers have already qualified for active service. Each regiment was asked originally to supply 115 men, and there should be little difficulty in finding the requisite number. Thirty-three Volunteers who had been passed by the doctor went out to Strensall yesterday, and sixteen qualified as marksmen. At 200 yards the shooting conditions were favourable, but before 500 yards was reached rain came on, and there was some low scoring which robbed some of the candidates of their places. Some of the unsuccessful men were within a point or two of the requisite number. The names and addresses of those who qualified are as follows: - S. Brown, York; - Kay, Fulford; - T. A. Scott, Filey; - A. J. Moon, York; - G. H. Jennison, Hull; - C. H. Edmondson, Hessle; - J. G. Walker, Bedale; - A. Yewdall, Wetherby; - Trooper Parker, York; - Trooper Brabbs, York; - Trooper Pawson, York; - Gatch, York; - F. Gant, Heslington; - Trooper Banks, Hemmingbrough; - B. Smith, Hemingborough; and S. Smith."

Scott had been born in the parish of Kilvington, but, was living in Filey at the point he enlisted, he joined the 34th Company Imperial Yeomanry for actual service in South Africa, in London upon on the 8th of January 1900 and not the Yorkshire Hussars Yeomanry Cavalry, who in effect sponsored many locals to join the Imperial Yeomanry.
In addition, Scott is on the 34th Company memorial in St Pauls Cathedral as well as Boer War memorial at Duncombe Place in York.
