....Said in the Lancashire press to be two officers and 92 non-commissioned officers and men of the 2nd A.S.C. 1st and 2nd Volunteer Battalions Loyal North Lancashire Regiment. ....They left Cape Town on the 24th of July, 1902, sailing on the 'Fort Salisbury,' arrived at Southampton on Friday, 15th August, and reached Preston on the 16th August, shortly before 10 a.m. ....Not including individuals who may have been attached to other regiments and returned home later, was this the last A.S.C. to return home? The 3rd A.S.C. 1st V.B. L.N.L.R. had arrived back in England on Saturday,12th July, over a month before the 2nd Company.
The definitive answer may lie in the book "Red Roses on the Veldt" which tells the story of all of the Lancashire regiment's involvement in the conflict.
I'll take a look when I get back home tomorrow, unless someone else can enlighten us in the meantime.
