The group (QSA/KSA) to the Cape Light Horse intrigues me. Were any medals issued to this outfit? I can't trace a medal roll for them on Ancestry and I just wonder if we are not dealing with a renamed pair B)

Regards

Rory

Rory,

I thought that was a mistake. Just looking for him on the rolls now ...

Rory,

I am struggling to find him too.

I don't think it can be the Cape Light Horse, as they existed between 1907 to 1929.

I thought it might be Orpen's LH but that didn't help.

He is not listed on the Colonial Light Horse roll in WO100/243 either.

I'll ask Michael.
