Chiazzari was the first "non-regular British soldier" to be awarded the DSO

The DSO to Major E H Molyneux-Seel, Royal Scots

He commanded the 2nd Mounted Infantry during the Boer War and was present at Wepener.

Does anyone have a breakdown of the number per country?

If there were 1160 total? Or just British?

Alexander, Barron and Bateman in South African Orders, Decorations and Medals say 104 for South African's in the Boer War? That is about 4% of their officers. Does that sound right?
