Dear Mike
If it helps
Trooper 1140 George Greenwood Share
Attested into the BSAP on 10.8. 1899 and was a member of the BSAP No. 2 (Matabeleland) Division.
He took his discharge by purchase on 8.11.1900. Conduct described as "Very Good"
I wonder where he wandered off to. Rimington's Tigers included several former members
of the BSAP in its ranks. Maybe, but I don't know.
Kind regards
Geoff

Dear Mike,
I've got a copy of the pre 1903 Nominal Roll. Information is brief,
but for person you are asking about it says:

Trooper 1400 William Herbert Rogers
Attested 26.5.1901
Was posted to the BSAP No. 2 (Matabeleland) Division
Discharged 25.5.1903 "Time Expired"
Conduct "Very Good".

I don't know where he went to next, but after the war several joined the
SAP, but I don't know if he was one of them.

The records of service for members of the BSAP prior to 1903, when the Force was
re-organized and numbering started from No.1 again, no longer exist and were probably
destroyed. Same seems to apply to records of the BBP unfortunately.

Kind regards
Geoff

Oops - finger trouble - that should have been SAC in my last posting and not SAP.

WO100/266p244 confirmed the single clasp to Louis Watson, 1st Sq RR. He served as 37783 Canadian Scouts and 30290 1st Brabant's Horse.

The Canadian Scouts roll (Wo100/287p325) shows he earned CC (crossed through), OFS & Tr with them and KSA (2) on WO100/370p42a.

He is listed for SA01 and SA02 on the Brabant's Horse supplementary roll (WO100/237p159) but these are both crossed through.

The Brabant's Horse QSA roll shows entitlement to CC but this too is crossed through with a note linking to his service in the Rhodesia Regiment.
