Can anyone advise me where I can obtain a copy of the Kaffrarian Rifles QSA Roll. I had a look at ancestry but no luck there.
Thanks for reading this

Max,

You can download WO100/254 from the UK National Archives for free.

I am glad to say I have got further on with this. My reason for research is QSA 785 Pte W Porteous Kaffrin Rifles. Clasps Cape Colony, Wepener, Transvaal and Wittebergen Thanks to David i can now see a roll with his QSA on it stating entitlement. I can also however find his KSA on WO100/362 he is numbered 785 and 3502 3. There are Two other rolls with his name on them for the C in Cs Bodyguard. WO100/243

Thanks for reading this. He was kia in 1916
