Dave F - sorry overlooked your response to my question. My question was based on what DJB wrote:
"Edwin Sydney Woodiwiss ...................... was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant in the Imperial Yeomanry in March 1901, was promoted to Lieutenant in May 1901 and to Captain in November 1901."
Of course what I overlooked is that all his 1901 promotions happened while he was at home.
Even so it does make one realise how extremely "difficult" it was to be awarded a KSA with only the 1902 bar - a maximum of 5 months towards the necessary 18 to qualify for the KSA could be gained in 1902, plus 12 in 1900 and 2 and half in 1899 making a total of 19 and a half months, so very little room for error.
