I believe my 2nd great-uncle, J Milne may have been a war correspondent with Reuters during the Anglo-Boer War. He was originally from Aberdeen.
He is on a list or Reuters' war correspondents in the article "THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BRITISH WAR CORRESPONDENTS IN THE FIELD AND BRITISH MILITARY INTELLIGENCE DURING THE ANGLO-BOER WAR" by Donal McCracken.
J Milne appears in the list of Reuters correspondents and is shown as being captured. He received the Queen's South Africa medal on 16 February 1903.
Any hints about where to find information about him would be welcome. I am contacting the Thomason Reuters archivist.
