There is no Buxton entry for Guide D.C.Trollip - but there are several Trollips; F.J. (Guide), L.H. (Agent or Guide), H.B. (Agent). Could be relatives? Later, I will have a look at the actual roll in case D.C. was missed.
Scout T.Mellett is confirmed with clasps as illustrated. Unfortunately, no additional information. 393 OFS clasps to FID.
Best regards
IL.

Just now I went through the FID QSA/KSA rolls. Must take my hat off to David Buxton; some of the names are very hard to read. Anyway. no reference on the QSA roll for Guide D.C.Trollip. However, the KSA roll shows an entry for a Guide D.Trollip with a marginal entry says "Eastern Province Horse".
Regards
IL.

Thanks IL - Yes quite so - Trollip's QSA is to the Eastern Province Horse and his KSA to the FID
