I have been in touch with Christopher of DNW and he has modified the description on the 5th Lancers QSA to read:
William Murch Scott, from Portland, Dorset, served with the 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers in South Africa during the Boer War. One of the two squadrons of the regiment present at Elandslaagte took part in the famous charge on 21 October 1899. As the Boers mounted their horses and started to retreat, the 5th Lancers charged them three times as darkness was setting in. Many Boers were cut down and two field guns were captured, with total enemy casualties of around 350.

Having seen action during some of the hardest fighting of the Boer War at Elandslaagte, Ladysmith and Belfast, Joseph Walmsley continued to see service in the Great War. Initially a Home Defence battalion, the 12th Manchesters were soon needed for service on the Western Front.
Arriving at Boulogne in July 1915, the battalion was soon put into action at Ypres, and in 1916 it took part in the battles of the Somme and at Delville Wood, continuing through Arras in 1917, the Spring Offensives of 1918, and until the end of the war.
