Hi everybody

Herewith the QSA to more participant in the action on 22 March 1901




• QSA, 3 bars Natal, RoM, Tvl: Lieut. A.R. Halling, Imp: Lt. Horse
Arthur Halling had one year’s pre-war service with the Cape Town Highlanders. He then served as Lieutenant in the Colonial Scouts from 14 Dec 1899 and resigned on 21 March 1900. The next day he enlisted in the 1st ILH at Pietermaritzburg as Trooper No 770 and was commissioned on 24 January 1901. He was mortally wounded in the action of 22 March and died of his wounds the next day. Capt Normand of “C” Squadron reported the afternoon that “We picked up the wounded, among whom was Lt Halling shot through the spine and in extremis”. Halling, under the name of “Lt Holbrig (since dead)”, was MiD by Gen Babington with 9 other officers as being “Brought to notice for excellent services rendered by them in capture of De la Rey’s guns and convoy on 24th March”. In reality the Mention must have been for the 22nd March, similar to that to SSM Hurst.
