The 2nd North Staffordshire Regiment arrived in South Africa in February 1900. Their history in Stirling is quite brief.

VD Ed VII, the reverse engraved, 'Major B Wardle 1.V.B. North Staff Reg. 19th Feb 1907';
[ BWM ]

B. Wardle was commissioned Lieutenant with the 1st Volunteer Battalion, North Staffordshire Regiment on 8 November 1890. Serving with the Reserve of Officers for some time he was appointed to command the Composite Cycling Company on 15 June 1901. The English Composite Cyclist Company originally comprised of five officers and 103 other ranks. Later also appointed to the Honorary rank of Major on 12 March 1902.

Resigning his commission on 20 December 1907 he was unable to enjoy his retirement as the outbreak of the Great War forced even the elderly to take up arms. Wardle was again commissioned Major in the Royal Defence Corps on 28 June 1916 (British War Medal). He was appointed as an Area Commandant in December 1916 and continued in that role until forced to resign due to ill-health on 19 June 1918. His silver war badge was sent to Danesford, Bridgnorth, Shropshire.
