I was in the Maxim Detachment, Captain Wheeler. I joined the force in Cape Town. There is also another Medal due me for Bechuanaland 1898 - Mounted Section, DEOVR, Captain, now Major Johnson.

I joined this force in Bulawayo. If the two last named Medals are not in your possession, I would be glad of information as to where I might apply for them.’On receiving the application form for his British South Africa Company's Medal, Atkinson also stated that he had received compensation of £150 and the coach fare from Bulawayo to Mafeking, after being treated in hospital and discharged at the former place as a result of an eye injury; BSACM Rhodesia 1896 (Troopr.
