Actually Mike, I had cause to look at the Canadian Scouts, again, recently!
In particular, this gentleman, 41579 Trooper William Strange, Canadian Scouts, my reason was just to plug a rather annoying hole in my collection, I did not at that point in time have a medal to Orpens Horse.
251 Lance Sergt W Strange had served with Orpens Horse and he is shown in WO100/263 page 113 as having his QSA with a Cape Colony clasp issued on the 4th of September 1902 and there was a note "No 41579 Canadian Scouts"
He is again shown in the Canadian Scouts QSA roll, WO100/287 page 321 as Trooper Wm Strange, their roll states "M+Clasp iss'd ag2/m2183" this roll also confirms the entitlement to the additional clasps Orange Free State and Transvaal, the Cape clasp is crossed through and a note "OFS+T issued 4/1/06 ag2/m/15732, the note in the remarks column "OLH" again confirms his service in Orpens Horse.
He is also shown in WO100/370 page 29, the Canadian Scouts KSA roll, again with OLH shown and his number Orpens, 251.
The medal, actually on offer was a QSA and Transvaal clasp, officially re impressed, Sergt W Strange Orpens Horse, needless to say, I did not buy it!
Best regards Frank
