A quick question... how many medals were issued off the Menne's Scouts roll?

I know that a large proportion of these men were "G" Squadron of the Colonial Scouts and would, in many instances, have had their medals issued off that roll.

Morning Rory

On the Menne's Scouts rolls - on the first page of each there is usually written number of medals and clasps issued with date of issue and destination.

Hello Rory

No, if you look just above Major Menne's name to the left it says "130 medals/217 clasps".

There will be other pages with similar information.

Tylden says briefly: A Natal corps, originally part of the Colonial Scouts, which served in the Eastern Transvaal, until disbanded in January, 1902.
