WILLOW GRANGE, November 23, 1899.

From Major General Hildyard's report, November 24, 1899: -

Staff-Major Munro, Brigade Major, and Lieutenant Blair, ADC, were of good value to me.

West Yorkshire Regiment (2nd Battalion)-Colonel Kitchener led the assaulting force with energy and judgment, and all ranks behaved admirably.  Major Hobbs was taken prisoner owing to his remaining too long attending to the wounded; he led the first line of the assault with judgment and good sense.  The services of Lieutenant Nicholson have been specially brought to my notice for attention to duty and the situation when others were inclined to deal with matters of less importance; I recommend him for special reward.  I also recommend Private Montgomery for a Distinguished Conduct medal; after being wounded in one leg he continued fighting in the firing line until again wounded.

Bearer Company-Major Ricketts commanded, and did good service both at the time and in connection with the removal of the wounded.

Guide-The services of Mr Chapman, who was so unfortunately killed, were of the greatest value; his intimate knowledge of the ground alone made it possible to carry out the operation.  I sincerely trust it may be found possible to bestow on his widow some mark of recognition of his distinguished service.

BELMONT, November 23, 1899.

From Lieutenant General Methuen's despatch, November 26, 1899: -

Staff Major General Sir H Colvile has already gained my entire confidence; nothing is ever likely to shake his coolness.  Captain Bulfin, brigade major, on whose shoulders great responsibility rested, did admirable work.

Scots Guards (1st Battalion)-The greatest credit is due to Colonel Paget for the manner in which he carried cut his orders, and for the intelligent handling of his battalion when left to his own resources.  I note with pleasure the valuable services rendered by Lieutenant-Colonel Pulteney, and the courage displayed by Lieutenant Bulkeley and by Lieutenant Alexander (General Colville says, "Both insisted on going on after they were wounded").  The 9th Brigade had taken a correct bearing, Lieutenant Festing leading, a duty he performed admirably, and I regret he was wounded.

Yorkshire Light Infantry-Major Earle's leading, knowledge, and coolness were most noticeable.

Royal Army Medical Corps-By 10.30 my division was in camp, by 1 all my wounded were in a comfortable house being carefully tended, by 5 p.m. next day the hospital train conveyed the less severe cases to Orange River, the graver cases to Cape Town.  This is the most perfect work I have ever heard of in war, and reflects the highest credit on Colonel Townsend.

From Major General Sir H Colvile's report:-

Staff Captain G Nugent, ADC, and my Brigade Major, Captain Ruggles-Brise; the latter was entrusted with leading the two battalions to Gun Hill, a task in which he was handicapped by never having seen the ground by daylight.

Grenadier Guards (3rd Battalion-Daring the assault on Gun Hill, Lieutenant and Adjutant Fryer, who was leading the men with extraordinary gallantry, was killed.  Lieutenant Colonel Crabbe was also leading with great gallantry.  2nd Lieutenant Powell's leading was very noticeable.

Coldstream Guards (1st Battalion)-Lieutenant Colonel Codrington's battalion was well and correctly handled.  Colonel Codrington draws particular attention to the skilful handling of his company by Captain Fielding, the coolness displayed by Lieutenant the Honourable C. Douglas-Pennant, and the complete control exercised over his company by 2nd Lieutenant Price Jones.  2nd Battalion-Lieutenant Colonel Stopford's battalion had less severe work than the others, but I consider its advance under fire was distinctly well performed.  Colonel Stopford particularly calls attention to the services of Major the Honourable A Henniker-Major and Captain Shute.

ENSLIN, November 25, 1899.

From Lieutenant Colonel Money's report, November 26, 1899:-

Staff-Captain Bulfin and Lieutenant Taylor rendered me great assistance, and were near me at the final assault.

Yorkshire Light Infantry-Sergeant Waterhouse at a critical moment acted with great coolness, and shot down one of the enemy's sharpshooters, who had been doing great execution to our men advancing at a range of 1,150 yards.

MODDER RIVER, November 28th, 1899.

From Lord Methuen's despatch, December 1, 1899:

Staff Lieutenant Colonel Northcott, who never left me, fell mortally wounded.  The Army has lost one of the ablest officers in the Service, and I cannot express the grief his death has caused me.  I personally bring to notice the value of Lieutenant Colonel Rhodes's service and Major Streatfield's service in sending forward reinforcements to Major General Pole-Carew, for on this movement the result of the evening's success depended.  Captain Bulfin, Yorkshire Regiment, did his duty admirably.  The valuable services of Captain Nugent, ADC, and Captain Ruggles-Brise are again noted.

Royal Artillery-Major Lindsay, 75th Battery, ignored a painful wound, and continued in command of his battery.  Lieutenant Begbie, suddenly placed in command of his battery, led it, and brought it into action with great coolness.  Captain Farrell, wounded a second time, continued to do his duty, having first placed a wounded man on one of the gun carriages.  Wounded gunners and drivers continued at their duty.  Lieutenant Rockford Boyd, on this, as on former occasions, showed himself reliable and capable of acting without orders.

Grenadier Guards (3rd Battalion)-Major Count Gleichen, CMG, showed coolness throughout the engagement, especially in attending to the wounded under a heavy fire.  Sergeant Brown and Private Martin, who helped him, were both shot.  Captain H Bathurst, was of great value in rallying a number of Grenadiers and Coldstreams shaken by the fire.  Lieutenant the Honourable A Russell showed great coolness in working the machine gun, which he did with marked success.  Sergeant Major Cooke displayed remarkable coolness under fire.

Coldstream Guards-Major Granville Smith volunteered to find a ford, which he did in dangerous mud and a strong river.  Captain and Adjutant Steele did excellent service during the day.  Sergeant Major S Wright showed great coolness when a change of ammunition carts was being made, and was of great value at a critical time.  Drill and Colour Sergeant Price rendered excellent service at Belmont and Modder River, whilst commanding half a company.  Drill and Colour Sergeant Plunkett collected 150 men, and helped the 9th Brigade crossing the river under Captain Lord Newtown Butler.  Lance Corporal Webb twice asked leave to go into the open to bind up the wounds of a Grenadier; under a heavy fire he succeeded in his object.

Scots Guards (1st Battalion)-I call special attention to Colonel Paget's cheerfulness and intelligence under the most trying surroundings.  He draws attention to the good services of the Master of Ruthven.

Northumberland Fusiliers-Major the Honourable C Lambton rendered invaluable assistance to brigadier.  Lieutenant Percival managed with great difficulty to establish himself with a small party on a point near railway, from which, by his judgment and coolness, he was able to keep down fire of enemy, many of his small party being killed.  Lance Corporal R Delaney, Privates J East, Segar, and Snowdon, under very heavy fire picked up and brought in a wounded man of Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.  Private Smarley, No. 1 of Maxim detachment, showed great coolness and judgment when wounded.

Yorkshire Light Infantry-Lieutenant Colonel Barter rendered invaluable assistance to brigadier.

Royal Army Medical Corps-Captain Moores, although wounded in hand, said nothing, but continued his duties.

MAGERSFONTEIN, December 10, 11, 1899

From Lord Methuen's despatch, February 15, 1900.

Staff I have to express my appreciation of the clear orders given out, and the careful arrangements made by Colonel Douglas, ADC, my chief staff officer, for the attack.  Major General Sir H Colvile showed coolness and judgment throughout two trying days.  The same remark applies to Major General Babington.  Lieutenant Cuthbert, Scots Guards, my extra ADC, showed considerable coolness in taking a message from me to the Gordon Highlanders; a volley was fired at him, killing his horse; he took off wallets and saddle and returned, letting me learn from others how he had behaved.  Major Maberley, RHA, acting galloper to Major General Babington, after rallying 30 or 40 men of different regiments, was severely wounded.  Captain Ruggles-Brise, brigade-major, and the ADC; of Sir H Colvile's staff, again earn honourable mention, not only in delivering orders, but also for their clear and accurate description of the position.

9th Lancers-Major Little, in the firing line, did good work all day.  Lieutenant Allhusen did good work with Maxims.

12th Lancers-Lieutenant Colonel the Earl of Airlie did excellent work with two dismounted squadrons, when good service was much needed.  Lieutenant Macnaghten did good work with Maxims.

Mounted Infantry-Major Milton, commanding, behaved gallantly, and was shot three times before he died; he was making a successful effort to rally some men of the Highland Brigade.

Royal Artillery-I again recognise the business-like manner in which Lieutenant Colonel Hall, commanding RA, carries out his duties in the field.  Major Bannatine Allason performed splendid work, and assisted greatly in checking enemy on right of our attack.

Coldstream Guards-Lieutenant Colonel Codrington, commanding, though wounded, insisted on remaining in command of his battalion till nightfall.  Major the Honourable W Lambton refused to be carried because the bearers were exposed to fire.  He remained on the ground 37 hours without food or water.  Major the Marquis of Winchester was killed whilst displaying almost reckless courage.  Sergeant Wilkinson, 2nd Battalion, showed courage in collecting ammunition.  Corporal Bartlet, 2nd Battalion, under a very heavy fire went 1,000 yards to get a stretcher for Major Milton.  Corporal Webb, 2nd Battalion, showed great courage in taking messages.

Scots Guards-Captain the Master of Ruthven performed, as on several other occasions, valuable services.

Royal Highlanders-Corporal Gayner, rallying men, and by his example encouraging his comrades.

Highland Light Infantry-Majors Garland and Honourable H Anson performed good service throughout the day.  Captains Richardson and Wolfe Murray were wounded, but remained in the front with their companies.  Captain and Adjutant Cowan, DSO, gallantly led and rallied has men, and was killed at close quarters.  Sergeant Major Stevens rallied men.  Sergeant McDonald's gallant behaviour specially brought to notice for carrying messages to guns and to medical officer under heavy fire.  Lance Corporal Fraser, Sergeant Piper Boss, and Piper McLelIan specially brought to notice for their cheery conduct under fire and helping to rally men.  Captain Shaul brought to notice for several specific cases of bravery when in charge of stretcher bearers of battalion.  Privates Peat, Richmond, and Stewart did excellent service and set a good example to their comrades.

Seaforth Highlanders-Captain Honourable Forbes Sempill rallied and led his men straight up to the front in a conspicuous and gallant manner.  Lieutenant Grant did good service, taking messages to the front from Colonel Hughes-Hallett under a heavy fire.  Lieutenant Lindsay, very gallant and conspicuous behaviour when in charge of Maxim gun.  Band-Sergeant Hoare, conspicuous for his coolness and gallantry during the day in helping Dr Ensor to succour wounded; personally carried Captain Fetherstonhaugh (wounded) on his back some 800 yards to dressing station.

Gordon Highlanders-Captain K B Towse recommended for special reward by his commanding officer for his gallantry and devotion in assisting the late Colonel Downman when mortally wounded in the retirement, and when close up to the front of the firing line; he endeavoured to carry Colonel Downman on his back, but finding this not possible supported him till joined by Colour Sergeant Nelson and Lance Corporal Hodgson; the conduct of these non-commissioned officers is described as admirable.

Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders-Captain A Campbell displayed great coolness throughout the day, and helped to dress the wounds of Captain Gordon under a hot fire.  Lance Corporal Ray and Private Phipps specially mentioned by Major General Babington as having helped him to rally men and take them into the firing line.  Private Johnson helped to remove a wounded Highlander from the front under a heavy fire.

Royal Army Medical Corps-Major O'Donnell and Lieutenant Delap were indefatigable in attending wounded under fire.  Lieutenant Douglas showed great gallantry and devotion, under a very severe fire, in advancing in the open and attending to Captain Gordon, Gordon Highlanders, who was wounded; also attending to Major Robinson and other wounded men under a fearful fire.

Cape Medical Corps-Private A Bettington, Cape Mounted Rifles (attached) helped to remove a wounded Highlander from the front under a heavy fire.

Lieutenant General Gatacre in his report, January 19, 1900, brings the following to the notice of the Commander-in-Chief: -

Royal Field Artillery-Major E M Perceval, 77th Battery, though severely wounded, continued to command his battery till the end of the day.

Northumberland Fusiliers (2nd Battalion)-2nd Lieutenant Duncombe-Shafto, Band-Sergeant J Stone, Colour Sergeant A Landen, Private G Benson.

COLENSO, December 15, 1899.

In a despatch from Chieveley, December 16, General Buller brings the following cases of distinguished services in the field to notice:-

At Colenso, on December 15, the detachments serving the guns of the 14th and 66th Batteries RFA had all been either killed, wounded, or driven from their guns by infantry fire at close range, and the guns were deserted.  About 500 yards behind the guns was a donga, in which some of the few horses and drivers left alive were sheltered.  The intervening space was swept by shell and rifle fire.  Captain Congreve, Rifle Brigade, who was in the donga, assisted to hook a team into a limber, went out and assisted to limber up a gun; being wounded he took shelter, but seeing Lieutenant Roberts fall badly wounded he went out again and brought him in. Some idea of the nature of the fire may be gathered from the fact that Captain Congreve was shot through the leg, through the toe of his boot, grazed on the elbow and shoulder, and his horse shot in three places.  Lieutenant Honourable F Roberts) King's Royal Rifles, assisted Captain Congreve; he was wounded in three places.  Corporal Nurse, RFA, 66th Battery, also assisted.  I recommend the above three for the Victoria Cross.

Drivers H Taylor, Young, Petts, Rockall, Lucas, and Williams, all of the 66th Battery RFA, rode the teams; each team brought in a gun.  I recommend all six for the medal for Distinguished Conduct in the Field.

Shortly afterwards Captain H L Reed, 7th Battery RFA, who had heard of the difficulty, brought down three teams from his battery to see if he could be of any use.  He was wounded, as were five of the thirteen men who rode with him; one was killed, his body was found on the field, and 13 out of 21 horses were killed before he got half-way to the guns, and he was obliged to retire.  I recommend Captain Reed for the Victoria Cross.

Non-commissioned officers and men, 7th Battery RFA, recommended for medal for Distinguished Service in the Field: Corporals A Clark (wounded), B J Money, Acting-Bombardier J H Reeve; Drivers C J Woodward, W Robertson (wounded).  W Wright (wounded).  A C Hawking, J P Lennox, A Nugent (killed), J Warden, A Felton (wounded), T Musgrove, Trumpeter W W Ayles (wounded).

I have differentiated in my recommendations, because I thought that a recommendation for the Victoria Cross required proof of initiative, something more, in fact, than mere obedience to orders, and for this reason I have not recommended Captain Schofield, RA, who was acting under orders, though I desire to record his conduct as most gallant.

From General Buller's despatch, December 17, 1899: -

Royal Field Artillery-2nd Lieutenant Holford, 14th Battery, displayed particular gallantry.

Devon Regiment (2nd Battalion)-Colonel Bullock behaved with great gallantry; he did not receive the orders to retire; his party defended themselves and the wounded of the two batteries till nightfall, inflicting considerable loss on enemy, and it was only when surrounded that he consented to surrender, because enemy said they would shoot the wounded if he did not.

COLESBERG, December 15, 1899, to January 25, 1900

From Lieutenant -General French's despatch, February 2: -

Staff-Major Generals J P Brabazon, CB, and B A P Clements, DSO, have rendered me much assistance, and I am anxious to acknowledge their valuable services.  Colonel T E Stephenson, Essex Regiment, has, on several occasions, rendered me valuable assistance; his leading of the infantry brigade during the reconnaissance in force on January 25 was excellent.  Major D Haig, 7th Hussars, Acting AAG and CSO, has shown throughout the same zeal, untiring energy, and consummate ability as have characterised his conduct and bearing since the very commencement of the campaign (in Natal), during the whole of which time he has acted in this capacity; I have had occasion to speak of him in a similar sense in former despatches.  Captain J Vaughan, 7th Hussars, my senior ADC, has acted for the past two months as DAAG, and has done excellent service in that capacity.  Major G O Welch and Captain T D Foster, ASC, DAAG's, have shown untiring zeal and energy in supervising the transport and supply services, which, in a force operating as this has been, on a very wide front, and often many miles from a railway, has been an arduous and difficult task.  I am much indebted to Major Honourable H A Lawrence, 17th Lancers, for the great assistance he has.  rendered me in having established such an excellent system of intelligence; his good work has been attended with the best results.  Captain P A Kenna, VC, 21st Lancers, provost-marshal, has performed his duties with zeal and energy: he has on more than one occasion shown an excellent example of bravery by going personally to the assistance of wounded men.  Lieutenant S L Barry, 10th Hussars, divisional signalling officer, has performed excellent service.  Lieutenant Sir J Milbanke, Baronet, 10th Hussars (wounded), and Captain J F Laycock, Nottingham Yeomanry, my ADC's, have displayed the same marked zeal, energy, and conspicuous courage as I have commented upon in former despatches.

1st Life Guards-Major G Carter has at various times shown considerable skill and resolution as squadron commander in the field, and has done valuable service.

2nd Life Guards-Lieutenant C Champion-de Crespigny, when in command of a patrol on January 19, showed great gallantry, and an excellent example to his men, in bringing wounded men out of action.

6th Dragoon Guards-Colonel T C Porter has frequently been employed as a brigadier and in command of advanced posts; he has always carried out the tasks allotted to him with much skill, zeal, and indefatigable energy.  Major F S Garratt has at various times shown considerable skill and resolution as squadron commander in the field, and has done valuable service.

6th Dragoons-Major E H H Allenby has at various times shown considerable skill and resolution as squadron commander in the field, and has done valuable service.  Major M F Rimington, employed in command of a Corps of Guides, has rendered me much assistance since he has been attached to this command.

Royal Horse Artillery-Lieutenant Colonel F J W Eustace, officer commanding BA, Cavalry Division, has displayed conspicuous skill and sound judgment in his handling of the artillery, which has played so important a part throughout these operations; he has been of the greatest help to me, and indefatigable when the most severe strain was thrown upon him and his command.  He has received much help from his adjutant, Captain A D'A King, who is deserving of great commendation.  Majors Sir J H Jervis-White-Jervis, Baronet, and B Burton deserve the highest credit for the manner in which they have worked their batteries throughout these operations; in face, very often, of a most galling fire from the enemy's well-concealed and protected artillery positions, they have uniformly maintained an excellent practice with most telling effect on the enemy.  Lieutenants E F Talbot-Ponsonby, J W F Lamont, J B Aldridge, and W G Thompson (wounded and a prisoner), deserve mention for signal services they have performed with their guns.

Royal Field Artillery-Major A E A Butcher, who joined with his battery of field artillery soon after the bombardment of Colesberg was commenced, with great energy and perseverance succeeded in placing two field guns on the top of a steep hill called Coles Kop, 800 ft high, and from this commanding position has inflicted great damage and loss on the enemy.

Royal Engineers-Brevet Major A G Hunter-Weston has commanded the field equipment, RE, attached to the Cavalry Division, and has acted as CRE to this force.  I am much indebted to him for many services performed, not the least of which has consisted in his maintaining a perfect system of telegraphic and telephonic communication throughout the force on a front of 38 miles.  He has received able assistance from Captain C O C Bowen, Lieutenant C Russell-Brown, and 2nd Lieutenant H L Mackworth.

Mounted Infantry-Captain H De B De Lisle, DSO, Durham Light Infantry, has done excellent service in temporary command; his action in the engagement of January 4, and the reconnaisance of the 25th, was of special value.  Captain A H S Hart, East Surrey Regiment, and Lieutenant C Saunders, Dorset Regiment (attached), on two occasions made valuable reconnaissance sketches of important parts of the enemy's position with very indifferent cover in a nullah (down which they had crept), from a galling fire.  Captain H L Buck-Keene, Oxford Light Infantry, Lieutenants Honourable C B Clegg-Hill, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and L K Smith, Boyaf Scots, have done specially good service.

Yorkshire Regiment-Lieutenant Colonel H Bowles has done very good service at critical times in command of his battalion.  Captain M H Orr was dangerously wounded during the attack on New Zealand Hill, which post he commanded with great credit.

Royal Berkshire Regiment-To Major F W N Mc-Cracken and the four companies serving with this force is the successful attack on Colesberg on January 1 principally due; I cannot speak too highly of this officer's coolness, courage, and intrepidity, or of the gallantry and discipline displayed by his officers and men in making the night assault which he led so well; the regiment have intrenched themselves, and have established such an excellent system of defence that the enemy's fire, although nearly unceasing, is practically harmless.  In connection with this work, I bring forward the names of Lieutenant A G E Bingley, acting adjutant, and Captain Sir T E S Pasley, Baronet.  [Marker p10/1]

New Zealand Mounted Infantry-Major A W Bobin, commanding, deserves special mention for the frequent occasions upon which he and his men have performed signal service during these operations.

New Zealand Mounted Rifles-On January 15, in Boer attack on Stinger's Farm, which was held by one company Yorkshire Regt, and one company New Zealand Mounted Rifles, Captain Orr, Yorkshire Regiment, who was in command, was badly wounded, and the Sergeant Major killed.  Captain W R N Madocks, RA (attached), saw the critical situation of the Yorkshires, and that they were practically without a leader'; with the greatest promptitude he took a few of his men to the west side of the hill, and rallied the troops holding it; be caused them to line their intrenchments and stem the enemy's advance; he then jumped up, gave the order to fix bayonets, and charge down the hill, upon which the Boers immediately turned; the greatest credit is due to Captain Hadocks and his New Zealanders for their prompt action.

Royal Army Medical Corps-Major H G Hathaway has been attached to my staff since my arrival at Naauwpoort; he has been unremitting in his attention to the sick and wounded; he has on several occasions and at critical times carried messages to commanders of units in the ield, and his services have been most useful

SPION KOP, January 24-27, 1900

From Sir R Buller’s despatch on the withdrawal, January 30:-

Royal Engineers (Pontoon Troop)-I must specially mention Major Irvine, and his men of the Pontoon Troop, who were untiring.  When all men were over, the chesses of the pontoon bridge were so worn by the traffic that I do not think they would have lasted another half-hour.

VAAL KRANTZ, February 6-8, 1900

From General Buller's despatch of February 8, detailing the operations from January 26:-

Royal Field Artillery-Lieutenant T M Archdale, 78th Battery, specially mentioned for the manner in which he withdrew the battery waggons under a heavy enfilade fire, which struck two out of the three waggons and several horses.

Royal Engineers (Pontoon Troop)-Major Irvine, and the officers, non-commissioned officers and men deserve much praise.

Lieutenant Colonel H Cowan, RA, has filled the post of Military Secretary; in that important position he has done most excellent work; he is able, painstaking, and methodical, and possessed of sound judgment; I could not wish for a more useful Military Secretary.

Lieutenant Colonel J Byron, Royal Australian Art.; Major S Denison, Royal Canadian Regiment of Infantry; Captain H Watermeyer, Cape Town Highlanders, ADC's.  [Marker p12/1]

Lieutenant Colonel G Henderson (local Colonel), York and Lancaster Regiment, Director of Military Intelligence, reorganised the Intelligence Department., and gave me valuable and reliable information regarding the physical features of the country and the dispositions of the enemy.

Captain C Mackenzie (Brevet Major and local Lieutenant Colonel), Seaforth Highlanders.  On Colonel Henderson being invalided, he was succeeded by Lieutenant Colonel Mackenzie, who afforded me material assistance by the accurate and valuable reports he submitted.  Lieutenant Colonel Mackenzie has drawn special attention to the good service rendered in the Intelligence Branch by Major C Hume, RA

Major General W Kelly, CB, DAQ, has afforded me very great assistance in the responsible position he has filled, and the vigilance and energy he has shown in the performance of his duties have been most marked.

Captain E Girouard (Brevet Major and local Lieutenant Colonel), DSO, RE, Director of Railways, has carried out his duties in a highly creditable manner; the concentration of troops prior to my advance was carried out by him without a hitch, and he has recently performed valuable services in restoring through railway communication between the Orange Free State and Cape Colony.

Surgeon-General W Wilson, MB, has had responsible and important duties to perform; the arrangements necessary to provide for the wants of the many sick and wounded nave required unremitting care and forethought, and the successful way in which they have been carried out reflects the greatest credit on horn.

Colonel W Stevenson, Royal Army Medical Corps, has been PMO with the force, and I desire to draw attention not only to the efficient manner in which he has supervised the working of the corps, bat also to the assistance I have received from him at all times.

Mr Watson Cheyne, FRS, and Mr Kendal Franks, FRCSI, consulting surgeons, who accompanied the Army, have rendered invaluable service by their advice and assistance to the medical officers.  They have been unwearying in their work among the wounded and sick, and, humanly speaking, many a valuable life has been saved by their skill.

MAFEKING, October 13, 1899, to May 17, 1900

From Major General Baden-Powell's despatch, May 18, 1900:

Major Lord E Cecil, DSO, as chief staff officer, was of the greatest assistance to me; he stuck pluckily to his work, although much hampered by sickness during the first part of the siege; he did a great amount of hard work in the first organisation of the frontier force, and his tact and unruffled temperament enabled our staff dealings with the Colonial civilians to be carried on with the least possible friction.

Captain Ryan, ASC, as DAAG (B), proved an exceptionally capable and energetic supply officer; on his shoulders fell the whole work of feeding the entire community-garrison, non-combatants, and natives-a duty which he carried out with conspicuous success.

Lieutenant Honourable A Hanbury-Tracey, Royal Horse Guards, as intelligence officer and press censor, has worked hard and successfully, and with tact and firmness in his dealings with press correspondents.

Captain O Wilson, Royal Horse Guards, as my ADC, in addition to his other duties, had charge of the soup and sowens kitchens, and did most useful work.

Honourable Lieutenant M'Kenzie, as transport officer, did excellent work in the organisation of his departments and in the purchase of mules and material, etc In addition to his other duties he acted as extra ADC to me, and was an exceptionally energetic and useful staff officer.

Major Panzera, BSA Police, as commanding artillery, showed himself a smart and practical gunner, endowed with the greatest zeal, coupled with personal gallantry in action.  The great success gained by our little guns, even when opposed to the modern armament of the enemy, was largely due to his organisation and handling of them.  He acted as my brigade major and proved himself a most reliable and useful staff officer.

Major C Vyvyan (local Lieutenant Colonel), East Kent Regiment, was base commandant, commanding engineer, and for three months town commandant; as such he organised the Town Guard and defences in the first instance.  To his untiring zeal and ability the successful defence is largly due.  He carried out a very heavy amount of work, practically single-handed, with conspicuous success.

Major Anderson, Royal Army Medical Corps, showed throughout untiring zeal, coupled with coolness and gallantry, in attending the wounded under fire, in addition to his eminent professional ability.  Latterly, as PMO, his unfailing tact and administrative capabilities rendered his services of greatest value.  The strain of his devotion to his duty told heavily on his health.

Medical Staff Dr W Hayes, Surgeon-Major Holmden, BSA Police, and Dr T Hayes, worked with conspicuous ceal and skill under a never-ending strain of work; all very frequently under fire in carrying out their duties, even in their own hospital.

Captain Greener, paymaster BSA Police, as chief paymaster, rendered most efficient and valuable service; he kept accounts of all Government expenditures and receipts, in addition to his ordinary accounts.  By his care and zeal I am convinced that the Government were saved much expense.

Bechuanaland Rifles-Captain Cowan, commanding, had his corps in such a condition of efficiency as enabled me to employ them in all respects as regular troops; he was at all times ready and zealous in the performance of any duty assigned to him.  Sergeant Cook, specially recommended for clever and plucky scouting and for gallantry in action.

British South Africa Police-Colonel Walford commanded southern defences with his detachment throughout with conspicuous success; always cool and quick to see what was wanted, his services were most valuable.  Captains A Williams and Scholfield and Lieutenant Daniells did much good and useful service.

Cape Police-Inspector Brown commanded detachment of Division  2; he and the splendid lot of men under his command did excellent work throughout, especially in occupation of trenches in brickfields, where for over a month they were within close range of enemy's works, and constantly on the alert and under fire.  Inspector March commanded detachment of Division 1 throughout, and carried out his duties most efficiently and zealously.  Trooper (local Sergeant Major) Hodgson acted as Sergeant Major to ASC, and was of the greatest help to Captain Ryan.

Colonial Contingent-Corporal (local Lieutenant) Currie, City Police, did exceptionally good service in command of the contingent, to wnich he succeeded when Captain Goodyear (who originally raised the corps) was severely wounded while gallantly leading his men.  Sergeant Major Taylor, for gallantry and general good work in the brickfields, scouting, blowing up a kiln occupied by enemy, etc (killed in action).

Protectorate Regiment-Lieutenant Colonel Hore, Stafford Regiment, raised, organised, and commanded regiment, which did invaluable service.  Major Godley, Royal Dublin Fusiliers, as adjutant, had much to do with the successful organisation of the corps when first raised; as commander of western defences throughout his services were of the highest value; his coolness, readiness of resource, and tactfulness in dealing with the Colonials made him an ideal officer for such command in action; he was my right hand in the defence, I cannot speak too highly of his good work.  Captain Marsh, Royal West Kent Regiment, commanded a squadron with very good results; he also had charge of defence of native stadt, and displayed great tact and patience in his successful management of the natives.  Capt, Vernon, KRRC, was a most successful officer in command of a squadron, and displayed the greatest gallantry in action (killed in action, December 26).  Captain FitzClarence, Royal Fusiliers, commanded a squadron; he distinguished himself on numerous occasions by his personal gallantry and exceptional soldierly qualities (twice wounded).  Lieutenant (local Captain) Lord C Bentinck, 9th Lancers, commanded a squadron with very good results; he did good service by his zeal and readiness in action.  Lieutenants Holden, Greenfield and Feltham did much good and useful work.

Cattle Guards, etc-The following organised and commanded, with most satisfactory results, the native cattle guards, watchmen, etc:-Captain (local) M'Kenzie, Zulus, etc; Mr D Webster, Fingoes; Corporal (local Sergeant) Abrams, Cape Police, Baralongs.

Signalling Staff Sergeant Major Moffatt, for gallantry in action in bringing a sergeant out of action under heavy fire; also for good work as a signaller.

Town Guard-Major Goold-Adams, Resident Commissioner of the Protectorate, commanded during last half of siege; his extensive knowledge of the country and people (both native and white) was of the greatest value, and his advice was always most willingly at my disposal; I am greatly indebted for the great assistance he at all times afforded me.  Captain (local) More, resident railway engineer, organised most effectively the railway employees into a paid division for the armoured train and a division for the Guard; his energy and resourcefulness were conspicuous throughout; the armoured trains, defence railway, search-light, etc, were made under his supervision.

Nursing staff-The work done by the lady nurses was beyond all praise.  Miss Hill, the matron of the Victoria Hospital, was assisted by a number of lady volunteers, in addition to her regular staff, consisting of Mrs Pannister and Miss Gamble.  Mother Superior Teresa and eight Sisters of Mercy also worked in the hospital.  Lady Sarah Wilson, assisted by other ladies, managed the Convalescent Hospital.  Miss Craufurd managed the Women and Children's Hospital.  These ladies worked with the greatest zeal and self devotion throughout.  The protracted strain of heavy work, frequently carried out under fire (Lady Sarah Wilson was wounded), told on most of them, Miss Hill being at one time prostrated by overwork.  It was largely due to their unremitting devotion and skill that the wounded, in so many cases, made marvellous recoveries, and the health of the garrison remained so good.

Civil-Mr C Bell, resident magistrate and civil commissioner, had entire charge of native affairs, and managed the chiefs with great tact, and very successfully at a critical time, when they were inclined to sit on the fence and see which was going to win, and were being tempted with offers from the Boers; as magistrate he also rendered me great assistance.  Mr F Whlteley's (Mayor of Mafeking) services were invaluable; in a most public-spirited manner he took up, at my request, the difficult task of arranging for the feeding and housing of all the women and children, and carried out their management with marked success; he was much assisted by Mr Rowlands, who gave up his house, garden, water supply, etc, to be used by the laager.  Reverend W Weekes also rendered valuable service in assisting in management of women's laager, etc Mr Howat, post and telegraph master, with his staff, Messrs Campbell, Simpson, and M'Leod, did invaluable work in connecting up and in keeping in communication with headquarters the whole of the defence works by telephone.  Mr Heal, the jailer, carried out most arduous and difficult duties most loyally and efficiently (killed by a shell, May 12).  Sergeant Stewart, Cape Police, rendered valuable service as head of civil police.  Mr Millar, head of refugees' laager, displayed much zeal and did excellent work in management of refugees' laager and defences, etc

For Special Recognition-In a despatch of June 6, General Baden-Powell recommends the following from amongst the above:-

Lieutenant Colonel Walford; Majors Panzera, Godley, Vyvyan, Lord E Cecil; Captain Ryan; all of whom did exceptionally good service.

Capt FitzClarence, for personal gallantry, recommended for the VC; Captains Marsh and Ashley-Williams, and Lieutenant Lord C Bentinck, good service in action; Major Anderson, medical service; Major Goold-Adams and Mr C O H Bell, civil and political services.

Mr F Whiteley (mayor of Mafeking), eminent civil services; his reward would be highly appreciated by the townspeople, as recognition of their share in the defence.

The following ladies for hospital services: Miss Hill, Mother Teresa, Lady Sarah Wilson, Miss Crauford; latter also for attending wounded Boers under fire on May 12.


Sir G White, in his despatch, dated Ladysmith, December, 2, 1899, brings to notice the following as being "eminently deserving of reward": -

The late Lieutenant General Sir W Penn Symons, KCB, I cannot too strongly record my opinion of the energy and courage shown by this distinguished general officer in the exercise of his command, until he was mortally wounded in the action at Talana Hill, near Dundee, October 20; in him the country has lost an officer of high ability and a leader of exceptional valour.

Major General Sir A Hunter, KCB, DSO, Chief of the Staff.  The services of this officer have been of the very highest value to the State; his zeal is indefatigable, and he has carried out the business of the force under my command so as to relieve me of all anxiety; he is equally good in the field, and has the gift of carrying with him all with whom he is brought in contact; I have every confidence in recommending this officer for advancement as one fitted for the highest commands.

Major General J French, commanding the cavalry, rendered me most valuable assistance; he commanded the troops engaged at Elandslaagte, where his dispositions resulted in the most decisive victory; I consider his services have merited very special recognition.

Brigadier General J Yule succeeded to the command of the Dundee force when Major General Sir W Penn Symons was wounded, and had a difficult duty to carry out; he conducted the retirement of the force from Dundee to Ladysmith with marked success.

Brigadier General O Wolfe-Murray, commanding lines of communication, is an officer of great administrative ability, and has done his work excellently well; he has been specially selected for this most important post from the confidence felt in him, and, as it is one that entails hard work and is not as popular as employment in the front, I think the value of the service should be exceptionally recognised.

Colonel I Hamilton, CB, DSO, has acted as brigadier-general in command of a brigade since my headquarters have been established at Ladysmith; I have made a special recommendation in favour of this officer for the manner in which he led the infantry at Elandslaagte on October 21 and consider him an officer of special ability who is well fitted for higher rank and command.

Colonel B Duff, ISC, has been my assistant military secretary, and has discharged the duties of the office with marked ability and success; his advancement will be a benefit to the Service, and he is well fitted for the highest staff appointments.

Brevet Colonel E Ward, CB, ASC, AAG (b).  I cannot speak too highly of this officer; his forethought in collecting supplies in Ladysmith while railway communication was open with the sea at Durban has enabled me to occupy the position here with perfect confidence that the garrison could not be starved out.  When the force originally at Dundee was thrown back on Ladysmith, having had to abandon the supplies provided for it, Colonel Ward's provision was ample, even for the extra strain thus thrown on the supply, as well as to meet the necessity of finding rations for the civil population; his power of work and resources are most marked, and he has won the confidence of all.  I consider him an officer of the highest administrative ability, and recommend him most strongly for recognition.

Colonel C Downing, commanding RA, has been my adviser on all artillery matters, and I count myself fortunate in having had the assistance of such an experienced and highly-educated artillery officer.

Colonel W Knox, CB, colonel on the staff, Ladysmith, has, from the appointment he holds, been left in command of Ladysmith on all occasions when the field army has gone out; his services have been very valuable,

Colonel W Royston, commanding Natal Volunteer Force.  The services which Colonel Royston and the forces under his command have rendered to the State and Colony have been of the very highest value; in him, I have found a bold and successful leader, and an adviser whose experience of the Colony and of the enemy has been of great value to me; employed on arduous duty, from the commencement of the campaign in touch with the enemy, I have found him prompt and ready for every emergency; he and his force reflect the highest credit on the Colony of Natal.

Colonel J Dartnell, Chief Commissioner Natal Police, rendered valuable services to the late Lieutenant General Sir W Penn Symons and to Brigadier General Yule when the Dundee column fell back on Ladysmith; his advice and experience were of the highest value, and I found him always ready and willing to help me in any way in his power.

Brevet Colonel Sir H Rawlinson, Baronet, Coldstream Guards, DAAG, has acted as AAG since this force was formed, and has proved himself a staff officer of very high ability; he has great power of work, and carries out his duties pleasantly and thoroughly; he is also a most valuable staff officer in action, and possessed of a quick eye and great dash; I recommend him for advancement.

Lieutenant Colonel R Exham, Royal Army Medical Corps, PMO, has had an anxious time in the charge of the sick and wounded of this force, and has done everything in his power to meet the medical requirements of the various phases of the present campaign; his zeal and assiduity are worthy of recognition.

Royal Field Artillery-The services of the artillery have been so valuable that I have special pleasure in recommending Lieutenant Colonels J Coxhead and E Pickwoad, commanding brigade divisions.  I consider the following have well earned special mention:-Majors J Dawkins, 13th Battery; W Blewitt, 21st Battery; C Goulburn, 42nd Battery; A Abdy, 53 Battery; J Manifold, 67th Battery; F Wing, 69th Battery.

Major S Rice, RE, acting as CRE, has been indefatigable in the discharge of his duties, and his services have been most valuable in preparing the entrenched positions occupied by the garrison, and in other matters connected with this particular branch.

Major E Altham, Royal Scots, AAG, Field Intelligence, has had a very difficult office to fill.  I consider has has done all that was possible; he has kept me informed of the enemy's movements, as well as changes, in his strength and dispositions.  I have a very high opinion of his ability and aptitude for the particular branch in which he is employed.

Major D Henderson, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, DAAG, Field Intelligence, is a most painstaking and reliable intelligence officer; he possesses boldness, discretion, and reticence, and is an officer of high promise.

Major W Adye, Royal Irish Rifles, DAAG, Field Intelligence, has proved himself an officer of a most adventurous spirit in reconnoitring and reporting on the enemy's positions, and his services have been valuable to me.

Major H Morgan, DSO, ASC, Assistant Director of Supplies, rendered most valuable service in disembarking and entraining the first reinforcements that arrived in Natal, and hurrying them on to the front.

The following carried out the duties of their departments with advantage to the State and credit to themselves:-Veterinary Lieutenant Colonel I Mathews, PVO; Majors W Savile, RA, Army Ordnance Department.; A Murray, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, who acted as staff officer to Brigadier General Yule during retirement from Dundee; Brevet Lieutenant Colonel H Lawson, BE, AAG, lines of communication and commanding at Durban; Major S Grant, RE, special service.

Railway Administration-This, under David Hunter, CMG, was most excellently carried out, and was worked most harmoniously and successfully in concert with the military and naval officers.

Excellent Service-Colonel C E Beckett, CB, AAG; Lieutenant Colonel R W Mapleton, Royal Army Medical Corps; Major C Hamilton, RA, who has been acting throughout as DAAG on my Headquarter Staff; Major H Mullaly, RE, DAAG; Brevet Major A King, Royal Lancaster Regiment, ADC to Major General Sir A Hunter, KCB, DSO; Captain F Lyon, RFA, ADC; Captain J Young, RE, railway staff officer; Captain F Tatham, Natal Mounted Rifles; Reverend E Macpherson, BA, senior chaplain, Church of England; Reverend O Watkins, acting Wesleyan chaplain; T Bennett, resident magistrate, Ladysmith; D Giles, resident magistrate, Upper Tugela magistracy; Conductor W Ashmore, Indian unattached list; Quartermaster Sergeant E Morton, Corps of Military Staff Clerks; Sergeant P Burke, Staff Clerk Section, ASC; Guides A Allison, T Loxton, and P Greathead, Natal Corps of Guides.

From Sir G White’s despatch, March 23, 1900.  [Marker p17/2]

Major General Sir A Hunter, who acted as my Chief of the Staff, is an offieer of well-known reputation.  I cannot speak too highly of him, whether for the performance of staff duties or for bold leading in the field; he is a most loyal and efficient staff officer, and I recommend him for advancement with the utmost confidence, being well assured such a step would be for the good of the State.

Major General F Howard, commanding 8th Brigade and in charge of Section B of defences, has proved himself a careful and able administrator; the works constructed in his section were exceptionally strong and well maintained.

Colonel I Hamilton, commanding 7th Brigade and in charge of Section C of defences, has during whole of operations been in charge of the most exposed and most extended front, including the immense position of Caesar's Camp and Waggon Hill, over four miles of perimeter.  I cannot speak too highly of his indefatigable zeal in organising the defence of his front, and in keeping up the hearts of all under him by his constant and personal supervision; his leadership on January 6 was the most marked factor in the success of the defence.

Colonel W Knox, colonel on staff in charge of Section A of defences, exercised the command entrusted to him with great zeal and skill.  The works constructed on his front were models of semi-permanent entrenchment, laid out from the commencement on a pIan which enabled him to strengthen them day by day until they became practically impregnable; he is an officer of fine nerve and a strong disciplinarian.  I trust his services may be adequately rewarded.

Colonel W Royston, commanding Natal Volunteer Forces, and in charge of Section D of defences.  I can only repeat the high praise which I had the pleasure to bestow on Colonel Royston in my despatch of December 2.  He commanded Section D in an admirable manner, and with his force, though much reduced in numbers by casualties and disease, continued to the end to perform invaluable service.  He is an officer exceptionally suited to his important position as commandant of the Natal Volunteer Forces, and I trust he may receive some suitable reward.

Major General J Brocklehurst continued to command the Cavalry Brigade until the horses became useless from starvation; in all cavalry actions round Ladysmith his personal gallantry was conspicuous.

Colonel C Downing, commanding RA, did all that a highly-trained specialist couid do to assist me, both as regards the employment of his batteries as mobile units and also in their distribution and action when it became necessary to demobilise them and place the guns in fixed epaulments; he is an officer in whose knowledge and judgment in artillery matters I have every confidence.

Major S Rice, commanding RE, was indefatigable in his exertions both by day and night, and showed considerable skill in laying out works and in giving to commanders of sections of the defences that advice and assistance in their construction which the trained officers of the Royal Engineers can so ably afford.

Brevet Colonel E Ward, CB, ASC, AAG (b).  As the siege continued and the supply difficulties constantly increased, his cheerful ingenuity met every difficulty with ever-fresh expedients; he is unquestionably the very best supply officer I have ever met, and to his resource, foresight, and inventiveness the successful defence for so long a period is very largely due; he is exceptionally deserving of reward, and I trust that he may receive tne advancement which his services have merited.

Colonel B Duff, ISC, assistant military secretary, performed the duties of his office with his characteristic ability and zeal; he also took a prominent part in the general staff duties of headquarters, in which his services were equally valuable; this officer is fitted for the highest posts.

Colonel R Exham, Royal Army Medical Corps, did all that a PMO could do in organising the medical services under circumstances of exceptional difficulty, and with personnel and materiel both inadequate for a siege of such long duration, accompanied by such a great amount of sickness.

Lieutenant Colonel R Mapleton, Royal Army Medical Corps, in charge of Intombi Hospital Camp, was placed in a most exceptional position, in charge of a neutral camp, where maintenance of discipline in the ordinary way was impossible, but in face of all difficulties he did everything possible to maintain sanitation of the camp and to ensure the well-being of sick and wounded.

Veterinary Lieutenant Colonel I Matthews, Army Veterinary Department, PVO, did excellent work in maintaining: so far as want of proper forage would admit, the efficiency of all animals belonging to the force; he was a very valuable adviser on veterinary matters both to myself and to general officer commanding Cavalry Brigade.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel Sir H Rawlinson, Baronet, Coldstream Guards, DAAG, who officiated throughout the siege as AAG (a), is a staff officer of great ability and activity, with a wonderful eye for the topography of the country; his constant observations of enemy s positions and movements were of much value to me in forecasting their intentions; he is well worthy of advancement.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel H Lawson, additional AAG (a), is a staff officer of the highest ability and the soundest judgment, and rendered me most valuable service.

Major B Altham, AAG for Intelligence, has had to contend with all the difficulties inseparable from intelligence work under the limitations imposed by siege conditions; all that was possible under these conditions he has done, and I consider him an excellent intelligence officer in every respect.

Brevet Major H Henderson, DAAG for Intelligence.  Towards the latter end of the siege Major Altham was attacked by enteric fever, and Major Henderson assumed charge of the Field Intelligence Department.; he is a bold and accurate reconnoitrer, and the intelligence he brought back was always reliable; whether as a subordinate or as head of Field Intelligence Department.  he has always afforded me the greatest assistance.  I recommend him for reward.

Major C Hamilton, DAAG (a), has done a good deal of most useful work, and has shown himself a Staff officer of high promise.

Major W Hawkins, Director of Army Telegraphs, was indefatigable in maintaining electric communication between my headauarters and all portions of defence; the service thus rendered was of highest value, and conduced greatly to the successful defence.

Major G Heath, in charge of Balloon Section, is a bold and enterprising aeronaut, and rendered useful service; the constant watch which he kept on enemy's movements being a source of much disquiet to them.

Major W Savile, Senior Ordnance Officer, conducted the duties of his department with zeal and ability.

Colonel J Dartnell, Chief Commissioner, Natal Police, possesses an exceptional knowledge of the Colony of Natal and of native character; I am greatly obliged to him for the advice and assistance which he has always been ready to afford me, of which I have availed myself freely, and which I have found of the highest value.

Magistrates-MrT Bennett, Resident Magistrate, was placed by me in charge of the civil camp at Intombi, and performed much good service in strictly enforcing the conditions on which I was permitted by Commandant General Joubert to maintain that camp.  Mr D Giles acted as resident magistrate during Mr Bennett's absence, and was of great assistance in maintaining discipline among the civil population, both European and native.

Chaplains-Reverends E Macpherson, O Watkins, T Murray, and Father Ford, senior chaplains of the Church of England, Wesleyan, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic denominations respectively, showed the greatest zeal and self-sacrifice in their attention to the sick and wounded as well as in their ministrations to those in health.

SPION KOP, January 16 to 25, 1900 From Sir C Warren's despatch, February 1, 1900:-

1st (Royal) Dragoons-The dispositions of the regiment throughout were carried out in a most skilful way by Colonel J Burn-Murdoch, and he, with Captain Honourable A Hamilton Russell, and Privates W Barnard and A Holdsworth, ascended Spion Kop after its evacuation, on morning of 25th, at great personal risk to ascertain whether it had been re-occupied by Boers.

West Yorkshire Regiment (2nd Battalion)-Colonel F W Kitchener, commanding, reports that Lieutenant A M Royall conducted a patrol to within 500 yards of Boer trenches to examine ground for an advance; out of 16 men he had only one man killed and two wounded, although exposed all day to full view of enemy on open ground on a grass slope; his conduct showed exceptional coolness and intelligence.  Private J Morant carried back a message from Lieutenant Royall under very heavy fire and was wounded.

Owing to the careful arrangements made for defence by Lieutenant Colonel Capper, commanding Railway Pioneers, and Colonel North, commanding 3rd Battalion Royal Lancaster Regiment, the attack failed.  I beg to bring both these officers to your favourable notice.

Lieutenant General Kelly-Kenny, in forwarding report to Lord Roberts, says:-

Major General Sir C Clery (local Lieutenant General) is a thoroughly capable divisional commander; his dispositions are always good, and he has a thorough knowledge of tactical and technical detail.

Major General Honourable N Lyttelton, CB, is a sound, capable commander who has done well; he has now a division, and is worthy of the advancement.

Colonel Earl of Dundonald (local Major General) has commanded a brigade of Irregular Cavalry to my entire satisfaction; his outpost work and scouting are excellent.

Lieutenant Colonel E Appelbe, Chief Ordnance Officer, is an officer of exceptional capacity and almost unbounded resource.  The foresight which he has displayed in providing for the wants of the force is deserving of every commendation.

Lieutenant Colonel J Burn-Murdoch, 1st Dragoons.  Since February 1 he has commanded 1st Cavalry Brigade in a very efficient manner; he is an excellent regimental commanding officer, and takes the greatest trouble to train his men.

Lieutenant Colonel A Sandbach, RE, as head of the Intelligence Department has been untiring, and has been of the greatest assistance to me.

Major G Ellison, DAAG, 2nd Division.  The general officer commanding 2nd Division speaks in the highest terms of the way in which Major Ellison carried out his duties; he has shown great administrative capacity, and has proved his value in the field.

Major A Chichester, Royal Irish Regiment, performed with marked energy, tact, and discretion the duties of Provost-Marshal, which were of an exceptional character owing to the number of rebels and suspected persons who had to be dealt with.

Captain J Cayzer, 7th Dragoon Guards, did excellent work as director of signalling; he established, and satisfactorily maintained, constant communication with Ladysmith under very exceptional difficulties.

Captain R Smythe, 21st Lancers (attached to 13th Hussars), has done excellent service with Cavalry Scouts; he has proved himself thoroughly well qualified for this important work, which he has carried out with daring, skill and judgment.  His reports are very clear and to the point.

Medical Arrangements-ColonelT J Gallwey, CB, PMO, has devoted himself to his work with marked success, and it is largely due to his great administrative powers and forethought that everything has worked so smoothly.  Colonel J Clery, who has been in charge of the general hospital at Mooi, has displayed great powers of organisation and readiness to overcome difficulties; his hospital is a source of admiration to all who have visited it.  Lieutenant Colonel W Allin has been PMO of the force in the field, and has had to make all the arrangements for the evacuation of hospitals and the removal of the wounded, which have, under great difficulties, been performed with great regularity and yet with the greatest consideration for the wounded.  Lieutenant Colonel P Johnston has been most successful in his management of the general hospital at Pietermaritzburg.  Colonel Gallwey mentions in the highest terms the assistance he has received from his secretary, Major W Babtie, who has been recommended for the Victoria Cross, in recognition of his gallantry at Colenso.  Lieutenant E Inkson's name has been specially mentioned to me for having habitually distinguished himself in action and for his care of the wounded under fire.

From General Buller's despatch, dated Laing's Nek, June 19, 1900.

Colonel J Brocklehurst (local Major General)-The 2nd Cavalry Brigade had no opportunity of combined action, but General Brocklehurst's dispositions contributed to the general success.  On June 10, the 18th Hussars gave valuable assistance and well-timed support to the South African Light Horse; on June 11, a valuable reconnaissance, through a difficult country occupied by the enemy, was made by Captain E Haag, 18th Hussars, and on the 12th the occupation of Volksrust by Captain E Harrison, 11th Hussars, attached to 19th Hussars, with a small party of that regiment was very well affected, and the measures he took for the seizure of archives and telegraph instruments were well considered, and proved of value.

Colonel Earl of Dundonald (local Major General), 3rd Mounted Brigade-This brigade gave most valuable assistance on the right at the capture of Botha's Pass on June 8; their ascent of the mountain and their getting up machine guns and two guns, RHA, was most valuable, and it is largely due to Lord Dundonald's action that our casualties were so small.  On June 11 the action of the brigade on our right flank was excellent, and owing to Lord Dundonald's good dispositions, he first contained and eventually drove off a force of the enemy far exceeding his own in number.  In connection with this, I recommend that Privates A Budworth, 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade, and J Bobson, Durham LL, both of the Composite Mounted Infantry Regiment, be granted the Distinguished Service medal.

Lieutenant Colonel E Hamilton, 2nd Infantry Brigade-This brigade was employed in the front both in the attack of Botha's Pass and at Allemann's Nek, and did well.

Colonel Talbot Coke (local Major General), 10th Infantry Brigade-This brigade occupied Van Wyk on June 8 successfully, and formed the right of the attack on Alleman's Nek on the 11th; I was much pleased with their action.

Colonel A Wynne (local Major General)-The 11th Brigade formed the left of the attack on Botha's Pass on the 8th, and General Wynne's dispositions were entirely satisfactory.

Royal Artillery-Colonel L Parsons' arrangements were, as usual, exceedingly good, and he was of the greatest assistance.  The heavy guns that accompanied the force were placed under the direction of Major E May, who displayed energy and zeal.  As usual, the fire of the 61st Howitzer Battery, under Major A Hamilton-Gordon, was admirably directed.

South African Light Horse-Major Honourable J H C Byng (local Lieutenant Colonel) (10th Hussars).  The regiment acted as an independent unit, and performed its duties exceedingly well throughout; Lieutenant Colonel Byng proved himself, as usual, a valuable commander.  Captain B Brooke (local Major) (7th Hussars), was specially recommended to me for the manner in which he commanded the left of our line on Van Wyk on June 6.

DAAG's-Majors H Sargent, ASC, superintended whole of transport with marked success; E Williams, East Kent Regiment, a valuable staff officer.

Thorneycroft's Mounted Infantry-On June 13 the Telegraph Department was sent back under an escort of 150 men of the regiment, under Captain C Minchin, ISC They were attacked by superior forces south of Gans Vlei, whom they drove off, and the waggons were brought safely back, via Botha's Pass and Schain's Hoogte, with the loss of only about seven miles of their line, which they were unable to pick up.  Captain Minchin's dispositions were good, and he brings to notice the names of Lieutenant Green, Corporal Teadall, and Private McGregor.

From Sir R Buller’s despatch of September 13, 1900, dealing with the affair at Bergendal on August 27: -

General Kitchener especially brings to notice the conduct of Corporal W Macdonald, Gordon Highlanders, and of Lieutenant A C Jeffcoat, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, while in command of gun detachments.

Lieutenant General Lyttelton's dispositions for the day were excellent, and the manner in which his instructions for the assault were carried out by General Kitchener was most praiseworthy.

The dispositions throughout the day of Colonel L W Parsons, officer commanding RA, were excellent.

Lieutenant Colonel C T E Metcalfe, Rifle Brigade, Lieutenant Colonel R L Payne, DSO, Royal Inniskllling Fusiliers, and Major T A H Davis, DSO, 1st Devon Regiment, showed conspicuous ability, and Major G M Cockburn DSO, Rifle Brigade, deserves the greatest credit for the manner in which, on his colonel being wounded, he assumed command, and the moment the assault was successful, reformed his regiment, and pushed on in pursuit.

I much regret the death of Captains Lysley, Steward, and Campbell, of the Rifle Brigade, each of whom led their companies most gallantly.

The following have been brought to my notice by General Lyttelton as specially deserving consideration: -

In a despatch dated November 9, 1900, General Buller details the work of the force employed in safeguarding the line of communications from Ladysmith to Heidelburg from July to September, and submits the following for consideration: -

Lieutenant Colonel J F Burn-Murdoch (local Brigadier General) commanded throughout the mounted troops employed in defence of Newcastle and surrounding district; his excellent arrangements and rapidity of movement secured the town and district from invasion, though it was, on many occasions, seriously attacked by superior forces, and notably on August 20, 21, 22, and 29.

General Burn-Murdoch brings the following to notice: -

1st Cavalry Brigade Staff Captains A Taylor, 13th Hussars, brigade major; a thoroughly good staff officer of a cavalry brigade in the field.  Captain R Smyth, 21st Lancers, intelligence officer; Lieutenant Honourable C.Guest, Royal Dragoons, assistant provost marshal; both have done excellent work.

5th Dragoon Guards-Lieutenant Colonel St J C Gore, commanding, has worked very hard to secure the success of his regiment; Captain P Reynolds, 3rd Dragoon Guards (attached), has done excellent service throughout, especially on night of August 15, when, with a party of 20 men he surprised and routed a commando of 400 men of the enemy.  Captain C Stuart and Lieutenant and Adjutant W Winwood are highly spoken of.  Sergeants W Berry, H Harris; Private R Mills.

1st (Royal) Dragoons-Major Lord Basing, commanding, has done very good work throughout, and has, on several occasions, handled the regiment in the field against superior forces with considerable skill.  Major J Rogers has always shown great military ability, as has also Captain H McNeile.  Captain G Steele has been adjutant throughout the campaign, and has done good work.  Lieutenants R Glyn, W Grant, C Calvert, and Captain T Pitt have done good work; the latter as regimental transport officer, has done thoroughly good work.  Regimental Sergeant Major C Parsons; Sergeant Linnane; Lance Corporal Lock; Lance Sergeant Elliott; Lance Corporal Grace; Private Lloyd.

13th Hussars-Brevet Colonel H Blagrove has commanded well throughout.  Major W Smithson has, on more than one occasion, shown much courage and determination, and Lieutenant F Wise has, on several occasions, shown himself to be an officer of resource when in command of a squadron.  Captains J Tremayne (adjutant), E Wiggin; Lieutenant E Denny; So-Sergeant Major Prentice; Privates J Pritchard, T Farrance, S Herbert.

No. 11 Field Hospital-C and D Sections acted as field hospital to 1st Cavalry Brigade.  The arrangements of Captain K M Cameron, MB, RAMC, gave every satisfaction, and he specially brings to notice the services of 3rd Class Asst Surgeon, R Hart, ISMD, as an excellent medical warrant officer, well worthy of advancement, and of Private A McKay, 1st Battalion Scottish Rifles, who has acted as nurse in special hospital cases throughout, and done most consistently good work.

Bethune's Mounted Infantry-Lieutenant Colonel E Bethune, 16th Lancers, raised the regiment and commanded most efficiently throughout the campaign.  Captains C Collopy, E Capell, Lieutenants Norman Packer and M Prior have distinguished themselves on more than one occasion.  Captains F C M Ford, J Annesley, adjutant (3rd Dragoon Guards), Lieutenants A .Slatter and G Webster have performed continuous good work throughout; as also have Regimental Sergeant Major G Mortiboy (18th Hussars, attached), Squadron-Sergeant Majors J Macbeth, H Saunders, Sergeants A Nichol, A Ball, H Shackle, F Howroyd, Privates A Reeves, A Partridge, P Kilcullen.

Composite Regiment of Mounted Infantry-Captain (local Major) H Gough, 16th Lancers, has commanded the regiment with most satisfactory results; an excellent cavalry officer, he has shown great merits as a leader.  Captain E Eustace and Lieutenant S Mott, 2nd Batt.  KRRC; Captain G Gory, 2nd Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers; Lieutenant A Mildmay, 3rd Battalion King's Royal Rifles, have done excellent work throughout and shown great skill, courage, and ability in leading and handling their men.  Lieutenant Manningham-Buller, 4th Battalion Rifle Brigade; F Watson, 1st Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers; G Grice, 2nd Battalion Scottish Rifles; L Price-Davies 2nd Battalion KRRC; E Thresher, 1st Battalion Durham Light Infantry, are specially mentioned; in the attack on De Lange's laager on August 14, Lieutenants Manningham-Buller and Price-Davies specially distinguished themselves.  Sergeants J Chambers, 2nd Battalion Scottish Rifles; W Jones, Bailey, Lance Corporal F Watson, Private W Bonsor, 2nd Battalion King's Royal Rifle Corps; Sergeant S Pidgeon, Corporal Slade, Lance Corporal A McCarthy, 3rd Battalion King's Royal Rifle Corps; Corporal C Allen, Privates H Jackson, 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade; Privates Hanrathy, Gregory, 1st Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers; Sergeant Connor, Corporal Smitt, Privates Fitzgerald, Kelly, Holmes, Reid, 2nd Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers, have done continuous good work throughout.

Thorneycroft's Mounted Infantry-In the area commanded by Lieutenant General Sir C F Clery, the mounted work was done by the regiment under Major (local Lieutenant Colonel) A W Thorneycroft, Royal Scots Fusiliers, who merits the highest commendation I can bestow; his talents, both as organiser and as a leader of men, are of the highest order.  Captain (local Major) G St Aubyn, King's Royal Rifle Corps, second in command, is a leader of high ability and courage, much above the average of his rank, and has shown great tact in dealing with Colonial troops.  Captain M Farquhar, who has performed exceptionally good service throughout, only joined for the war, and I recommend him for especial consideration.  Captain E Molyneaux, 12th Bengal Lancers, a dashing and capable leader of men, has distinguished himself on several occasions.  Captain E Morris, Devon Regiment, has acted as adjutant throughout the whole 12 months, and has been distinguished for his power of organisation, his tact and management of men in camp, and his ability and courage in the field.  Captain A Green, Worcester Regiment, an excellent officer, has shown great ability as a scout, and has dash, pluck, and good judgment.  Captain C Minchin, 1st Punjaub Cavalry, an officer of many acquirements, has done specially good service throughout.  Lieutenant R Villiers, who joined the regiment as a private, having been in the Ceylon Mounted Infantry, has done specially good work throughout.  Major W Peyton, 15th Hussars, succeeded Captain (local Major) Q St Aubyn as second in command on July 23, when that officer was invalided; with a quick grasp of the situation, he is a leader of high ability and is also a valuable officer in matters of interior economy.  Privates A Neilson and W Strong are brought specially to notice for gallant conduct.

In conclusion, General Buller says: -In bringing the foregoing to notice, I specially mention the mounted corps separately, because in the protection of a line of railway the duties which fall to them are so much more onerous and dangerous than those which fall to other corps, that I thought it but fair to mark, by reporting upon them separately, my sense of their really excellent work.

In his final despatch of same date, General Buller brings to notice the following as deserving of special mention, and requests that the mentions be taken as a whole in connection with his despatch of March 30: -

Colonel J Wolfe-Murray (local Major General), has commanded the Lines of Communication in Natal throughout) his services have been invaluable; he has maintained throughout a perfect military organisation, and the best possible relations with the civil authorities.  He is an officer of great military value, and I know of no position he could be allotted in which I should not feel with perfect confidence that he would distinguish himself.

Headquarter Staff, Lines of Communication- Major H Heath (local Lieutenant Colonel), Yorkshire Light Infantry, AAG, has been CSO to General Wolfe Murray, throughout; possessed of great power of work, thorough knowledge of his duties, and shrewd common sense, he has contributed much to the efficiency of the service he had charge of; I recommend him strongly for advancement.  Lieutenant Colonel T O'Dell, ASC, AAG (b), has been of the greatest possible assistance; he has a thorough knowledge of all the duties pertaining to his branch of the staff, and especially those relating to the transport of troops by sea and their movement by land; I cannot speak too highly of his work.  Captain T H Shoubridge, DSO, Northumberland Fusiliers, Staff Captain, has worked most creditably; he is well deserving of notice and of promotion.  Captain C Southey, Royal Irish Fusiliers, ADC to General Wolfe Murray, has taken his share of the work; he is a smart, promising officer, with an acute knowledge of military detail.  Staff Sergeant Major C Williams, Staff Clerk Section, ASC, has been chief clerk throughout; a capable worker, he thoroughly understands the management of an office, and has done most excellent work; I regret to say that when I left Natal I thought him suffering from overwork.

Durban-Colonel A Morris succeeded Captain P Scott, RN, as commandant; he has had a difficult and onerous position to fill, and has shown great tact and ability in dealing with the numerous and delicate questions that have presented themselves in connection with the administration of martial law at this most important seaport; the best testimony I can bear to his work is that when I was leaving Durban I was asked by the Mayor not to relieve the town from martial law, as it was, he said, working admirably under Colonel Morris.  Major Bousfield, Natal volunteers, has devoted his local knowledge, his professional skill, and his singular personal influence to making the administration of martial law easy,; I owe him a deep debt of gratitude.  Captain C Toogood, Manchester Regiment, has acted as military landing officer throughout; practically the whole of the military embarkation and disembarkation work at Durban has devolved upon him; he was very junior for so important a position, which was one of great responsibility, and proved himself fully equal to the occasion; I strongly recommend him for advancement.

Pietermaritzburg-Brevet Colonel R Martin, commandant, has worked steadily and well in a position which was not, I think, at all in accordance with his tastes, but he accommodated himself to his duties, and has carried them out to my entire satisfaction.  Major E Kennedy, West India Station staff officer, has proved himself a hard-working, painstaking and reliable officer; I can confidently recommend him to notice.  Captain H A Coddington, Royal Irish Fusiliers, baggage master, has had a very difficult task to carry out; he has shown great energy and considerable power of organisation; I trust his labours may be rewarded.  Army Schoolmaster A Arthur has done excellent work while employed as clerk.

Depots-Major R Sandwith (local Lieutenant Colonel), Leicester Regiment, has commanded the General Depot almost throughout the campaign; with no permanent staff, and at one time 3,000 men in depot, the duty has been a difficult one, and has been discharged in a manner that I can commend.  Lieutenant Colonel B Quill organised and has commanded the Convalescent Depot formed after the relief of Ladysmith with great success.  He is an energetic officer, who takes much interest in the welfare of the men under him.  Major T Glynn, Liverpool Regiment, has done excellent work as adjutant and quartermaster of Convalescent Depot.  Lieutenant Colonel Quill speaks most highly of his work and capacity, and I agree that much of the success which has attended this depot must be attributed to Major Glynn, whose work I commend to notice.  Corporal S Mackenzie, 5th Dragoon Guards, has done very good work as orderly room clerk of Convalescent Depot.

Station Staffs-The following have done very useful service at various stations on Lines of Communication:- Lieutenant Colonel G Mills, 1st Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers, as commandant at Estcourt.  Brevet Lieutenant Colonel J Dalrymple-Hay, West India Regiment, as commandant at Railhead and Volkrust Lieutenant Colonel T McGubbin, Durban Light Infantry, as commandant at Mooi River, Estcourt, and Dundee.  Major M Curry (local Lieutenant Colonel), Devon Regiment, as commandant at Ladysmith.  Major C Watts, Derbyshire Regiment, as station staff officer, Mooi River and Volkrust, and latterly as commandant, Volkrust.

Royal Engineers-Lieutenant Colonel H Rawson, CRE, who has had charge of the whole of Engineer works on the Lines of Communication, has been indefatigable; his technical knowledge, his vigour of mind and body, and his tact have overcome every difficulty; I can confidently recommend him for your most favourable consideration.  Major J Cowan, staff officer, has done much good work; a good engineer, with a cool head, and full of resource; I trust his good work and abilities will not be lost sight of.  Colonel Rawson.  mentions, as specially deserving of consideration, Quartermaster Sergeant E Plowright; Sergeant Major Foreman of Works A Carmichael (since deceased; Quartermaster Sergeant V Knowles; Staff Sergeant R Chilcott; all of whom have done excellent work, and in the absence of superior officers, work of higher quality than would, under ordinary circumstances, have been expected from them.

Censors' Department-The following deserve special mention and thanks; their work, which is, at any time, unpleasant and difficult, has been carried out efficiently, and with, I think, the least possible friction:-Majors W Jones, Wiltshire Regiment, principal press censor; H Vowell, West Yorkshire Regiment; S Bird, Royal Dublin Fusiliers; W F Walter, Lancashire Fusiliers; C Glyn, (late 32nd Foot); T Fraser, Of these., Major Jones, Mr Glyn and Mr Fraser have been employed throughout, and I specially recommend them for favourable consideration.

Supply-Major H Morgan (local Lieutenant Colonel), ASC, has been throughout in charge of the Supply of the Natal Field Force; in addition to undertaking the extremely onerous duties of supply, he also charged himself with the supervision of the "Natal field Force Canteen," an institution which proved the greatest possible boon to all officers and men, and which, under his able direction, supplied the best possible goods at lowest possible rates.  Colonel Morgan's arrangements for it were admirable, and will, I hope, be made a model for use on any future compaign.  He has shown himself to be possessed of great talent for administration and power of work, and of that appreciation of responsibility which enabled him not only to accept but to discharge in the most responsible way every difficulty with which he was faced; no work has been too severe for him, and in my judgment no reward would be too good for him.  Lieutenant Colonel F A le P Trench, ASC, Assistant Director of Supplies, is accurate, painstaking, of good judgment and great business capacity; I recommend him very favourably to notice.  Major G M V Hunt, ASC, who has rendered good service throughout the campaign, works hard, and gets good work out of his subordinates; he is a valuable staff officer.  Major N A D Barton, Connaught Rangers, attached to ASC, has been in charge of the Supply Duties at Durban, a post of great responsibility; -with no previous experience of such duties, he has fulfilled them with remarkable success, and developed business aptitude of a very high character; I recommend him strongly as a most deserving officer.  The work of the Army Service Corps employed on the lines of communication has been of a most arduous nature.  The following warrant and NCO's.  and men have been brought to my notice as having performed specially good work:-1st Class Staff Sergeant Majors J Fisher, F Walsh, W Bateson; Staff Sergeant Majors E G Singleton, J Sinister, Einton, Reed, W Harris; Staff Quartermaster Sergeants E Barris, S Lea, Ashley; Farrier Quartermaster Sergeant Shaw; Company Quartermaster Sergeant F Stanton; Staff Sergeants B Sharpe, J Connor; Sergeant H. Allen; Corporals T Hamer, F Siddle, H Mills, Privates Harris, Fish; Sub-Conductor P Lowry, Indian Commissariat Department.  Quartermaster and Honorary Lieutenant T Doherty and Quartermaster and Honorary Lieutenant H Beaumont, ASC, have performed excellent work in connection with Supply and Reserve Depots, and are deserving of recognition.

Transport-Lieutenant Colonel G Stanley, ASC, Director of Transport throughout, has been conspicuously successful in meeting all requirements, and his resource and forethought are only equalled by his unfailing cheerfulness; in my opinion, Colonel Stanley's services have been of immense value, and no reward which can be given to him would be top great.  Captain G Conway-Gordon, ASC, Assistant Director of Transport, has filled a responsible position most successfully; of varied attainments and good ability, he has done first-rate work.  The following officers are brought to notice by Colonel Stanley:-Major G Hamnett, ASC, on whom the work of preparation of the transport has chiefly fallen; Captain C Dodgson, ASC, has commanded the Transport Remount Company throughout, and his work has been very heavy; Captains H Burrard, ASC, and J Hennessy, ISC, have done excellent work.  The following officers have been attached to Army Service Corps, and have all done excellent work:-Captains Cecil Yonge, Natal Volunteers; E Vaughan, 1st Battalion Manchester Regiment; Lieutenants J Livingstone, 3rd Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders; I G Sewell, Royal Fusiliers; Riding-Master and Honourable Lieutenant T Kearns and Quartermaster and Honorary Lieutenant C Bamford, ASC, have done good service and deserve recognition; Staff Sergeant Major F Derbyshire, ASC, has performed duties of chief clerk most efficiently, and is deserving of promotion; Sgt.-Major F Kennedy, AMS, is a capable and energetic warrant officer, and Sergeant J Buckley, ASC, has worked exceptionally'well; Conductor M Maher, ISC, has done good work in connection with the Indian Pack Mule Train.

Remounts-Colonel R Stevenson, Inspector of Remounts, discharged his duties most satisfactorily; of unbounded energy, he exercised great foresight in providing for possible requirements; I trust his exertions will be recognised.  Captain R Sparrow, 7th Dragoon Guards, who has acted as DAAG, Remounts, throughout, is a steady, conscientious, hard-workingofficer : he has done right well.  Quartermaster and Honorary Lieutenant R Pillinger, Remount Establishment, has performed arduous duties with the utmost zeal.  Farrier-Major Stroud, 1st (King's) Dragoon Guards, has worked throughout with great energy and success, and has performed his duties in an admirable manner.

Medical Department-Colonel T Gallwey, MD, has been PMO of the Natal Field Force througnout; I believe he has succeeded in maintaining on the lines of communication, and at the front, a higher standard of comfort in general, stationary, and field hospitals, and a better service in bearer companies than has ever Before been attained with a force in the field; his unbounded energy and his unrivalled powers of organisation have aided him in this work, but beyond this he has shown a devotion to his work, a grasp of situation, and a capacity of forethought that justifies me in saying that I consider his services eminently deserving of the highest consideration.  Colonel J Clery, PMO, of the lines of communication, is an officer of sound judgment, common sense, and high administrative power; in his hands the hospital of Mooi River became remarkable as a model of what a hospital should be, and since that he has done most valuable service in supervising the hospitals and medical work along the lines of communication in Natal; I trust his services may be rewarded.  Lieutenant Colonel P Johnsson, MD, did admirable work at a time of great pressure at the commencement of the campaign, showing much foresight and good powers of organisation.  The following deserve mention for the excellent duties they performed in connection with general and stationary hospitals:-Lieutenant Colonels J Mac-Neece, No. 7, General; H Martin, MB, No. 14General; Majors T Lucas, secretary and registrar, No. 4 General; F Daly, No. 1 Stationary; H Johnston, Mooi River General; G Brazier-Creagh, excellent service with ambulance train; S Westcott, R McCormack, MD, Base Depot, Medical Stores; Lieutenants and Quartermasters, No. 4 General; F Ball, Howick General.

The number of warrant and non-commissioned officers of the Royal Army Medical Corps who have performed work locally considered worthy of special mention, is very large, and the same remark applies to the Militia and Volunteer Medical Staff Corps, St John's Ambulance Brigade, Army nursing sisters, Indian Medical Service (attached), Imperial Irregular Corps, and Natal Volunteers, civil surgeons, and Colonial nurses.  I am quite unable to make a selection of the names forwarded to me, and have forwarded the list to the Director-General, AMS, begging him to obtain permission to publish such names as ne may think desirable.

I express the gratitude of the whole force to the following:-HRH Princess Christian of Schleswig-Holstein for the gift of a hospital train, which has been the greatest blessing to our sick and wounded; Red Cross Society, under Sir J Furley; Durban Women's Patriotic League; Army Hospital Aid, Pietermaritzburg; Mr A Mosely for his munificent donation of Princess Christian Hospital, Pinetown; Mr F Stevens, who gave the use of his house and grounds for Princess Christian Hospital; Mr Coope, who, gave his yacht "Sunrise" for the use of sick and wounded officers; Sir Samuel Scott, who similarly took sick and wounded officers on board the "Golden Eagle." These cases stand out, but there were many other instances in which private individuals generously contributed.

Ordnance-Lieutenant Colonel (local Colonel) E Appelbe, Chief Ordnance Officer, deserves the highest praise; hard-working, resourceful, with a thorough knowledge of his subject, he has worked at very high pressure throughout; he has made no difficulties, foreseen every want, and kept the Field Force thoroughly well supplied; I strongly recommend him for reward.  The Ordnance Department has been short-handed throughout, and an unusual amount of work has fallen upon individuals, and I submit the following m order of merit as specially deserving;-Captains G H Stoyle, A Barton; Major W Savile; Sub-Conductors W Dickson, G Longstaffe; Quartermaster Sergeant E Sydney; Privates J Armstrong, E Stupple; Corporals W Bunt, A Passaway, Private J Wallace; 1st Class Armourer Sergeant G Woodhall, J Hepburn.

Army Pay Department-Colonel W Mortimer, chief paymaster, has rendered most valuable assistance; of great experience and sound judgment, his advice has been most valuable, while his energy and knowledge have, I hope, been proved by the regularity with which he has rendered his accounts; I recommend his good work for favourable consideration.  Lieutenant Colonel R Ireland has been Senior Field Paymaster throughout, and has rendered good and valuable service.  Major F G Hamley has done excellent •work as Colonel Mortimer's senior assistant.  Captain J O'Hara has been Chief Cash Officer throughout, and has discharged bis duty in a thoroughly good and business-like manner.  1st Class Staff Sergeant Major H Yates and Staff Sergeant Major H George deserve consideration.

Veterinary Department-Veterinary Major (local Lieutenant Colonel) C Rutherford, was, for a time, senior veterinary officer on lines of communication; of high professional attainments and good business capacity, he is deserving of promotion.  Veterinary Captain R Raymond, senior veterinary officer, lines of communication, has held a position of considerable responsibility, and has proved himself equal to the occasion; I believe him to be above the average, professionally, and recommend him for promotion.  Veterinary Lieutenants G Williams, F Wilson, R Cochrane, have done good work, as have Farrier Quartermaster Sergeant Padfleld, 18th Hussars; Staff Corporal-Farrier Hives, Royal Horse Guards; Farrier Quartermaster Corporal R Peacock, 2nd Life Guards; Staff Corporal-Farrier D McKenzie, 2nd Life Guards.  Civil Veterinary Surgeon D Quinlan, attached, has been in charge of Veterinary Hospital Remount Depot, Mooi River, and given every satisfaction and done much good work.

Railways-The military part of the railway administration has been under the direction of Major G Elliot, RE, Assistant Director of Railways, who is an officer of unbounded energy and thorough knowledge of construction; his services have throughout been important.  Captain H Livingstone, RE, Deputy-Assistant Director, Has shown good sense and tact, and done good work as our military representative with Natal Government Railways.  Lieutenant Fuller, RE, has proved himself a capable and promising young officer in a responsible position.  Captain C H Harrington, Liverpool Regiment, who has acted as staff officer at various stations with conspicuous success, is an officer of first-rate ability, business capacity, and tact; I strongly recommend him for promotion.  Captain F Reeves, East Kent Regiment; Lieutenant Sir W Dick-Cunyngham, Baronet, Royal Highlanders; 2nd lt.  T Wingate, King's Own Scottish Borderers, have done good service as staff officers.

Headquarter Staff Personal Staff. Colonel Honourable F Stopford has acted as my military secretary throughout; his services have been invaluable to me; early in the year he was offered the command of a brigade the duties of which he would, I am certain, have discharged with distinction; he refused, thinking that at the moment it would be difficult for me to replace him; I trus that his loyalty to myself may not act to his loss, and I confidently recommend him to your consideration.

Corps Troops.

Royal Field Artillery-19th Battery: Major ,R Gubbins commanded well; through no fault of his it had not the same number of opportunities that other batteries obtained; the battery was a good one.  61st (Howitzer) Battery: Major Hamilton Gordon is an exceptionally able battery commander, and has an exceptional knowledge of howitzers; cool and resourceful in action, he is most careful of the comfort both of his men and his horses; I desire to commend his services in the strongest manner possible.  Lieutenant J Dooner is a very promising young officer, and very cool under fire.  Sergeant Major W Ayling; Sergeant E Wilson.

Royal Garrison Artillery-Major F Curteis commanded Brigade Division of Position Batteries; an officer of high professional attainments, he rendered valuable assistance in organising and equipping the heavy guns of position; I commend him for your consideration.  Captain A Budd acted as adjutant, and proved himself a thoroughly reliable staff officer.  Captain T Hudson, 10th Mountain Battery, was in charge of 12pr qf guns, and did very well.  The work of Battery-Quartermaster Sergeant R Richardson, 10th Mountain Battery, merits special mention.  Major C Callwell, 16th Company, Southern Division, commanded a battery of 5-in guns throughout; his battery rendered admirable service.  Captain R Home showed considerable ability when detached in charge of a section of 5-in. guns.  Company Quartermaster Sergeant J Greig, Bombardier T Mahoney, 16th Company Southern Division.   The 2nd Company Western Division did good service in the field with guns of position.  2nd Lieutenant E N Tandy, of that company, was specially mentioned to me for his services when detached with two 12pr qf guns with a column under Lieutenant Colonel E Bethune, 16th Lancers.  The 10th Company Western Division also did good service, and Captain G Davidson was always noticeable for the excellent manner in which he handled his 12pr qf guns.  The 6th Company Western Division were in charge of 4.7-in. guns, and did very good service.  The health of Major G Talbot unfortunately broke down, and he was succeeded by Captain F Prendergast (attached), who, with a capital knowledge of practical gunnery, is cool and full of resource; I strongly recommend him for consideration.

Ammunition Column-Major N Findlay, RFA, is one of the best officers I met; he was an admirable commander of an ammunition column, loaded with ammunition of many different natures; his batteries were complete every night, and he never made a mistake; he has all the qualifications for the staff and for high command, and I desire to bring his name most prominently to your notice as deserving of all consideration.  Captains F Poole, J Byron; Lieutenant H Newcome.

Divisional Ammunition Park-Captain F Patch, RA, organised this park in January, and up to the relief of Ladysmith was the only officer with it; he has commanded throughout, and there has never been a hitch in the supply, notwithstanding the great difficulties of transport; he is an exceptionally able officer, and his services are deserving of special recognition.  Capt C Hill, RGA, commanded a detachment of Vickers-Maxims, and proved himself an able officer.

Supply Column-Captain H Cleve, ASC, commanded very satisfactorily throughout the campaign.

Supply Park-Lieutenant Colonel J Falls, ASC, has commanded nearly the whole time, and has carried out this difficult duty well, and has shown considerable tact in managing the strange mixture of individuals he has had to deal with.  The park has been always up when due, and never given any trouble; the credit of this is due to Lieutenant Colonel Falls.

Colonists-I cannot close this report without alluding to the great assistance I have received throughout the war from the Colonists in Natal.  Colonel (local Brigadier General) J G Dartnell, CMG, will, no doubt, report through the proper channel upon the Natal Volunteers.  I can only say that their services were invaluable to the Empire; that they took part in every engagement in Natal, and willingly remained in the field, though at great inconvenience to themselves, until they knew that their services could be spared.  [Marker p36/1]


In his despatch dated London, April 2, 1901, Earl Roberts brings forward the names of some who have in their civil or military capacity most prominently distinguished themselves, or whose services have come under his personal observation.  In a later despatch his lordship proposes to deal with officers and other ranks of the Regular forces whose names have been brought forward by general officers under whom they have served, and with all ranks of Militia, Imperial Yeomanry, Volunteers, Indian and Civil Lists, and he trusts that the inevitable delay in publishing their names will not affect the date of their promotion or reward.

Lines of Communication-The organisation and working of the lines of communication, exclusive of Natal, have been entrusted to Lieutenant General Sir F Forestier-Walker.  .  .  That all has been successfully accomplished is due to that officer and his able assistants, especially Colonel J K Trotter and Major H du Cane, RA

Government Railways-My thanks are especially due to Mr C B Elliot, Mr T R Price, and the staff of the Cape Government Railway; also to Mr D Hunter and staff of Natal Government Railway.  The successful carrying out of the enormous railway transport operations is mainly due to the very willing aid afforded by these gentlemen and their hard-worked establishments.

Directors of Railways Department-The difficult and arduous work performed by this department reflects the greatest credit upon all concerned.  Brevet Major E P C Girouard, DSO, held the important position of Director, and to his able administration, power of organisation, and unflagging energy the success of his Department is mainly due.  I am much indebted to him for his valuable services.

Transport-On my arrival in South Africa I decided that the transport service must be reorganised.  The result of this reorganisation, under Major General Sir W Nicholson, has been most successful, and has fully justified my expectations.

Army Service Corps-To do justice to the excellent •work done by the corps during the war, and to give lengthy details of the magnitude of the task assigned to this department, are beyond the limits of a paragraph in a despatch.  .  .  .  The Natal army has reason also to be entirely satisfied with the manner in which it has been supplied, and the occasions have been rare when any portions of this army have had anything but full rations.  Tliese services reflect the greatest credit on Colonels W Richardson and E W D Ward, Directors of Supplier, and the Army Service Corps serving under them.

Army Telegraphs-The duties performed by the Army Telegraphs under Lieutenant Colonel R Hippisley, RE, have my entire approbation.  No portion of the Army has had more work or greater responsibility ... Great credit is also due for the quick way repairs to the lines, so frequently interrupted by the Boers, have been carried out.  This is a most dangerous service, as there is always a chance that the enemy may be lying in wait near the break, but there has been throughout the most unhesitating promptitude in its performance.  The young officers in charge of cable carts have also often had perilous work to perform when winding back their wire, alone or with a very small escort.

Submarine Telegraphs-The working of the Submarine Telegraphs was most satisfactory, and the liberality of the companies in giving special rates for soldiers was much appreciated by the Army.

Military Postal Service-No little credit is due to the department under Major Treble in the first few months, and for the greater part of the time under Lieutenant Colonel J Greer, Director of Military Postal Services, for the way in which it has endeavoured to cope with the vast quantity of correspondence, bearing in mind the incessant manner in which the troops have been moved about the country, the transport difficulties which had to be encountered, the want of postal experience in the bulk of the personnel of the corps, and the inadequacy of the establishments laid down for the several organisations.

Government Postal and Telegraph Services and Cape Town Police-These services have had an immense amount of extra work thrown on them, which they have carried out to my entire satisfaction, and my thanks are due to Mr Somerset French, CMG, and his staff, for the very capable manner in which the Postal and Telegraph Services have been worked, and to Captain Jenner, Chief of Police, and his subordinates, for their loyal assistance.

Royal Army Medical Corps-Under Surgeon-General Wilson this department has laboured indefatigably both in the field and in the hospitals.  I am not unconscious of the unremitting services of the great majority of the officers.  There are many instances, indeed, recorded of great gallantry having been displayed by officers in carrying on their work of mercy under heavy fire, and in the face of exceptional difficulties their duty has been ably performed.

Consulting Surgeons-My thanks are also due to the distinguished consulting surgeons who have come out to this country, and by their advice and experience materially aided the Royal Army Medical Corps The services rendered by Sir W MacCormac, Mr G H Makins, Mr F Treves, the late Sir W Stokes, Mr Watson Cheyne, Mr C Cheatle, Mr K Franks, Mr John Chiene, and Sir T Fitzgerald were of incalculable value.

Civil Surgeons-The abnormal demand upon the Royal Army Medical Corps necessitated the employment of a large number of civil surgeons, and to these gentlemen the Army owes a debt of gratitude.

Hospitals-The heavy strain on the Army Medical Department was further much relieved by the patriotic efforts of the several committees and individuals who raised, equipped, and sent out complete hospitals.  None but those on the spot can realise how much the Irish Hospital under Sir W Thompson, the Yeomanry Hospitals and Bearer Company, under Mr A D Fripp, MVO, MB, MS; Mr A R J Douglas, MRCS; Mr A A Scott-Skirving, MRCS; Mr T H Openshaw, FRCS; the Langham Hospital, under Mr R T A O'Callaghan, FRCSI; the Welsh Hospital, under Professor T Jones, MB, FRCS (dead), Professor A W Hughes (dead); the Princess Christian's Hospital, under Mr J P Bush, MRCS; the Edinburgh Hospital, under Mr D Wallace, MB; the Scottish National Hospital, under Mr H E Clarke, MRCSE; the Van Alen Hospital, under Mr S Osborn, FRCS and the Portland Hospital, under Mr A Bowlby, FRCS, and Dr H H Tooth, contributed to the comfort and well-being of the sick and wounded.

Hospital Trains-Invaluable assistance was rendered to the sick and wounded by those private persons, members of the British Red Cross Society, who, headed by HRH Princess Christian, raised, organised, and equipped hospital trains.  As a result of their patriotic exertions, two complete trains were constructed, one being built at Birmingham, and the other made up at East London.  Eight other hospital trains were organised by the medical authorities in South Africa, and also rendered excellent service.

Hospital Ships-The Army in South Africa owes a great deal to the hospital ships, and to the staff of medical officers and nurses who attended the sick and wounded, transferred to them from the base hospitals.  The "Spartan," "Trojan," and "Princess of Wales" were used to convey invalids to Cape Town from other colonial ports.  The "Lismore Castle," "Dunera," "Orcana," "Avoca," "Nubia," and "Simla" were originally hired transports, and were fitted out at Durban and employed in establishing a fortnightly system of hospital ships for the conveyance of invalids to England.  The " Princess of Wales" and "Maine" were fitted out and maintained by the splendid generosity of private individuals, the former by the Central British Red Cross Committee for HRH the Princess of Wales, and the latter by a committee of American ladies.  My grateful thanks, as well as those of the Army in South Africa, are due to the individuals concerned, as well as to those owners of private yachts who placed them at the disposal of the wounded officers and men.  [Marker p37/1]

Tongas-My thanks are due to Khem Bahadur Dhan-jibhoy, a Parsee gentleman, long resident in the Punjab, who presented tongas for ambulance purposes.  These tongas were horsed and fully equipped with drivers and all necessary gear.  They proved most useful.

Nursing Sisters-I find it difficult within the limits of a short paragraph to give expression to the deep feeling of gratitude with which the Nursing Sisterhood has inspired all ranks serving in South Africa.  The devotion, skill, courage, and endurance displayed equally by the Army Nursing Service and by kindred organisations from the Colonies, have excited my admiration, and fully justified the opinion I have held for years as to the necessity and economy to the service of an ample nursing service for our Army.  Some of the nurses who have been the most helpful have been lent to the Army Nursing Reserve by the great hospitals in the United Kingdom.

Army Chaplains' Department-I gratefully acknowledge the services rendered by this department, under Reverend E H Goodwin. The devotion to duty of the several chaplains, civil as well as army, throughout the campaign, especially during the siege of Ladysmith and in the hospitals, have been frequently brought to my notice.

Army Ordnance Department-This department has had an immense amount of work during the campaign, and under the capable direction of Colonel R Noel Clarke has carried it out in a very satisfactory manner.  The military operations covered a vast area, and only two single lines of railway were available, and these were so congested with troops, horses, and material of all sorts, that to get stores to the front in good time was always a matter of uncertainty.  That they were able to cope with these difficulties and keep the Army supplied with all the various stores that are dealt with by the department, reflects great credit not only on Colonel Clarke, but also on those under him.

Army Pay Department-The work thrown on this department has been out of all precedent with that which it has ever been called on to perform in previous campaigns; but it has been carried out under circumstances of great difficulty by Colonel W B Wade and his assistants to my entire satisfaction.

Army Veterinary Department-This department, under Veterinary Colonel I Matthews, has performed good work.  The peace establishment being too small for the requirements of a large war, necessitated the employment of 123 civil veterinary surgeons, who, however, soon adapted themselves to the conditions of active service, and did much good work.  Great assistance was afforded by the excellently-organised field veterinary hospitals so kindly lent by the Government of India.  These hospitals leave nothing to be desired as regards supplies and equipment, and the personnel of Native NC officers, shoeing smiths, and trained attendants, rendered most valuable service.

Remount Department-The calls made upon the Remount Department., under Major W Birkbeck, 1st Dragoon Guards, and HSH Captain Prince Francis of Teck, have been quite abnormal …  The way in which all ranks have done their utmost to cope with difficulties, and profit by the experience gained in the earlier parts of the campaign, is certainly deserving of credit.  The personnel sent by the Government of India proved of much value.

Signalling-The work done by the signallers, under the experienced guidance of Major T E O’Leary, Royal Irish Fusiliers, has been very arduous, and has frequently been carried out at great personal risks.  The young officers and the NCO's and men employed have risen to their responsibilities, and have in almost every instance acquitted themselves to my entire satisfaction.  The establishments for the different units have been found to be too small, and the absence of signallers with the Militia and Royal Artillery has necessitated men being attached from other branches from which they could ill be spared.  The electric search-light used for signalling purposes in connection with the relief operations of Ladysmith and Kimberley was of great service, and was provided by the Naval authorities.

Sir Alfred Milner-I cannot omit to mention the benefit I have derived from his unfailing support and wise counsels.  I have felt it a high privilege to work in close communication with one whose courage never faltered, however grave the responsibilities might be which surrounded him, and who, notwithstanding the absorbing cares of his office, seemed always able to find time for a helpful message or for the tactful solution of a difficult question.

Sir W Hely-Hutchinson-My grateful thanks are also due to the Governor of Natal.  During the earlier part of the campaign I was practically cut off from communication with him, but I have since learned how throughout that period of anxiety and peril he and his ministers did all that men could do to help the troops at the front, and to keep up the spirit of the inhabitants of the Colony.  Sir W Hely-Hutchinson endeavoured in every way to meet the various requirements of the Army, and I am glad of this opportunity of saying how much I appreciated the assistance he afforded.

Sir Godfrey Lagden has my cordial thanks for the valuable assistance he has rendered and for the firm attitude he displayed under very trying circumstances; for the complete control he has maintained over the natives of Basutoland, for the accurate and valuable intelligence collected by his agents, and for the provision of a very large number of Basuto ponies for the use of the mounted infantry.

General Lord Kitchener of Khartoum, as my Chief of the Staff, rendered me unfailing and very loyal support, and I am greatly indebted to him for the valuable assistance he at all times afforded me.  He held a difficult position, and discharged its duties with conspicuous ability.  I left the command of the Army in South Africa to my late Chief of the Staff with the utmost confidence that ha would do all that man could do to bring the present phase of the war to a speedy conclusion.

Major-General W F Kelly served first as my DAG, and then as AG, duties for which he is eminently fitted, and in carrying out which he proved himself a most efficient staff officer.

Colonel B Wood, RE, as my CRE, gave me every satisfaction.

Colonel Sir W Nicholson (temp.  Major General), Director of Transport, has always been ready to give me assistance in any other matters which from time to time I have had occasion to refer to him.  His marked ability and ripe experience in all administrative work have been of very great value to the Army in South Africa.

Colonel Ian Hamilton, CB, has already been repeatedly mentioned for his services.  In March, 1900, he joined me in the Orange River Colony, and since then has at different times been m command of a mounted infantry division, a division of infantry, and large mixed forces of all arms.  I have long had occasion to recognise the exceptional military qualifications of this officer, and the high expectations which I have formed of his capacity for command have been amply justified.

Lieutenant Colonel H V Cowan, RA, military secretary, has continued to give the closest attention to his work, which has been of the most confidential and often very arduous nature.  In the performance of these duties he has given me complete satisfaction.  I am much indebted to him for his able assistance.

Lord Stanley (late Lieutenant Grenadier Guards), Honourable Colonel 2nd VB Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, has for the last five months been my private secretary, in which position, owing to his thorough knowledge of men and affairs, he has rendered me valuable assistance.

Captain A C M Waterfleld, ISC, my assistant military secretary, is a young officer of considerable promise, and did good work on many occasions in the field.

Colonel H R Viscount Downe went out as my ADC, and was afterwards selected to accompany the Military Attaches of Foreign Powers, in which position his tact and judgment proved of much value.

ADC's-Captain the Earl of Kerry, Lieutenant Lord Settrington, Lieutenant Lord Herbert Scott, Irish Guards, and Lieutenant H Wake, King's Royal Rifles, carried out their responsible duties to my entire satisfaction.  The Duke of Westminster, extra ADC, performed his duties loyally and well.  [Marker p38/1]

Colonial ADC's-Lieutenant Colonel Byron, Royal Australian Arty; Major Denison, Royal Canadian Regiment; Captain Watermeyer, Cape Town Highlanders; and Lieutenant Seddon, Roughriders, New Zealand Contingent, performed their various duties loyally and well.

Major T Laing, who raised and commanded my bodyguard, and whose recent death I deeply deplore, showed himself an officer of great merit, and I am much indebted to him, and to Captain W M Sherston, commanding the 48th Company, Imperial Yeomanry (Army Headquarters, Escort), and to Captains C H Cough and A G Maxwell, ISC, Camp Commandants, for their excellent arrangements.

Major W R Edwards, IMS, took over medical charge of the Headquarters Staff in March, 1900, and performed his duties most satisfactorily.

Lieutenant and Quartermaster J Bowers, ASC, my confidential clerk throughout the campaign, proved himself an able and most reliable officer.

Lieutenant Colonel Sir H Rawlinson, Baronet, Coldstream Guards, AAG, is a very promising officer.  By his untiring energy, and his readiness and quickness in all emergencies, also by his good eye for country and topographical knowledge, he has proved himself to be possessed of considerable soldierly qualities.

Major C Hume, RA, took over the duties of DMI when Major Colin Mackenzie was appointed Military Governor of Johannesburg.  He has worked hard, and has carried out all his duties in a thoroughly conscientious manner.

Major R M Poore, 7th Hussars, has, as Provost-Marshal, carried out his somewhat thankless duties with commendable energy and success.

Captain H H Wilson, Rifle Brigade, DAAG, is an officer of considerable ability.  He has worked on the Headquarters Staff since August with energy and success, and done much good work.

Brevet Major HH Prince Christian Victor-The much to be regretted death of his Highness occurred before I had forwarded the recommendation for reward, which he so well deserved.  His sterling qualities as a soldier, his unfailing courtesy and attention to his duties, had endeared him to all with whom he came in contact, and his early death is a real loss to the Army.

Captain G F Gorringe (Brevet Lieutenant Colonel), RE, Major H I W Hamilton, Royal West Surrey Regiment, and Major J K Watson, King's Royal Rifle Corps, who served on Lord Kitchener's staff, have done much hard and good work throughout the campaign.

General Right Honourable Sir Redvers Buller held the chief command until my arrival; from that time onwards he was in command of Natal Field Force, and carried out the difficult operations terminating in the relief of Ladysmith.  Subsequent to that event his troops formed part of the main army, which had for its object the occupation of the Transvaal up to Komati Poort.

Lieutenant General Sir G S White was mainly responsible for saving the colony of Natal from being completely overrun by the enemy.  His gallant defence of Ladysmith, and the prowess shown by his troops at Talana, Elandslaagte, and Wagon Hill will live in the annals of history.  I greatly regret that ill-health prevented Sir George White from taking a conspicuous part in the latter stages of the campaign.

Lieutenant General Lord Methuen has been in command of a division since the first despatch of troops from England in October, 1899.  The manner in which he has kept his command at all times ready and complete for service, the rapidity of his movements, combined with his untiring energy and conspicuous courage, have largely contributed to the present comparative quiet on the western border of the Transvaal.

Major General C Tucker has always worked under my immediate command.  He is a good fighting soldier, and has afforded me able assistance on many difficult occasions.

Major General Sir A Hunter is an officer possessed of great soldierly qualities and considerable experience in war.  He came out to South Africa as Chief of the Staff to Sir Redvers Buller, but, owing to the force of circumstances, he served during the siege of Ladysmith as Chief Staff Officer to Sir George White.  He, with his division, came under my direct command in April, 1900, since when he has performed valuable service in connection with the arrangements for the relief of Mafeking and the capture of General Prinsloo.

Major General Sir Leslie Rundle has commanded a division in South Africa since last April.  He and his troops have had a very trying time, and have acquitted themselves of their task in a most creditable manner.

Major General T Kelly-Kenny, as General Officer, Lines of Communication, Orange River Colony, and previously as GOC of that colony, has invariably shown sound common sense and military instinct of a high order through many trying and anxious hours.  I am much indebted to him for the good service he has performed.

Major General G T Pretyman has been Military Governor of Bloemfontein since last March, a difficult post, in which he has carried out his duties to my entire satisfaction.

Major General C Barton has been in command of the 6th Brigade, first in Natal and afterwards in the Orange River Colony and Transvaal.  He is a careful and thoughtful leader.

Major General J D P French, as GOC the Cavalry, has on every occasion rendered me invaluable service.  He never makes difficulties, and is a man of exceptional nerve; his truly soldierlike qualities are only equalled by his sound judgment, his unerring instinct and his perfect loyalty.  His services have been of incalculable value to the Empire as well as to myself.

Major General R Pole-Carew commanded a brigade under Lieutenant General Lord Methuen to that officer's entire satisfaction.  In April, 1900, he was given the command of a division, with which he did good service at the battle of Diamond Hill, and subsequent advance to Komati Poort.

Major General R S S Baden-Powell, as the gallant defender of Mafeking, is already well known.  Since the relief of that town he has held a command in the field, and I selected him for the responsible position of Inspector-General of Police, in which his undoubted organising powers will have ample scope for good and useful work.

Colonel W H Mackinnon commanded the whole of the CIV troops.  In this position, unprecedented in the annals of our military history, he displayed tact, judgment, and resource, and I am much obliged to him for the manner in which he carried out his duties.

Colonel C E Knox was for many months in command of the 13th Brigade, in which he did such excellent service that I have on several occasions lately given him the command of mixed columns.  In every case he has fully justified his previous reputation as a gallant soldier, a sound strategist, and a good tactician.

Colonel E T H Mutton, ADC, commanded 1st Brigade Mounted Infantry, in which capacity his unbounded energy and soldierly qualities, and his thorough knowledge of mounted infantry duties have on several occasions been of great service.

Colonel H H Settle, DSO was for some time Inspector-General Lines of Communication, Cape Colony, where he did good work.  Latterly he has, on several occasions, commanded columns in the disturbed districts of the Western Transvaal and Orange River Colony, and has always carried out his duties to my complete satisfaction.

Colonel G H Marshall has been CRA to the Army in South Africa.  In this position he has had an immense amount of responsible work to perform, and has done it with praiseworthy diligence and skill, having an able and untiring assistant in the person of Lieutenant Colonel Sclater, his AAG

Colonel A Paget, 1st Scots Guards, was sent from Bloemfontein in April, 1900, to command 20th Brigade at Kimberley, and served with in the west and east of the Orange River Colony.  Afterwards he was given command of a mixed force, with which, in the northern theatre of war, he has shown energy, decision, and intelligence in his successful efforts to pacify a very turbulent district.

Colonel R Clements, DSO, ADC, commanded 12th Brigade, with which he took up the work of General French at Colesberg, when that officer was moved forward to the relief of Kimberley.  Since then he has rendered good service both in the Orange River Colony and in the Western Transvaal.

Colonel E W D Ward was of immense value to Sir George White during the siege of Ladysmith.  After the relief of that town he joined Army Headquarters, and from that time was Director of Supplies to the Field Army.  His readiness and resource, his imperturbable good temper, his power of organisation and thorough knowledge of his duties, deserve the thanks of all ranks in the Army.  Colonel Ward is an officer who stands quite by himself as a departmental officer of genius and character.

Colonel C W Douglas, ADC, came out originally as AAG to Sir Redvers Buller, and shortly afterwards succeeded' Colonel Pole-Carew in command of the 9th Brigade, which he has held ever since.  In this position he has rendered Lord Methuen every support and assistance, and has earned my thanks for his continuous and useful work on the western border of the Transvaal

Colonel W G Knox served with credit throughout the siege of Ladysmith.  He has since then commanded a brigade in the Orange River Colony, and has carried out his duties in a soldier-like and efficient manner.

Colonel J G Maxwell commanded 14th Brigade in the general advance from Bloemfontein to Pretoria.  After the capture of that city he was appointed to the post of military governor, a position in which his business-like methods and sound common sense proved most valuable, and helped him to overcome many difficulties with credit and success.

Colonel Hector Macdonaid, DSO, ADC, has commanded the Highland Brigade since the lamentable death of Major General Wauchope.  He has shown resolution and energy in carrying out the somewhat thankless task which has fallen to the lot of his command, of pacifying the Orange River Colony and protecting its communications.

Colonel R G Broadwood has commanded 2nd Cavalry Brigade throughout.  He has had a great deal of hard and responsible work, under which his health gave way-but with his soldierly instinct he returned to South Africa as soon as he recovered, and will, I feel confident, prove himself the gallant cavalry leader I believe him to be.

Colonel H L Smith-Dorrien, DSO, has done extremely well with 19th Brigade.  He has shown exceptional aptitude for command in the field, being sound in Judgment, quick to see and act, and full of resource.  He is, moreover, a good organiser, and possesses in a marked degree the confidence of those in his command.

Colonel B M Hamilton, East Yorkshire Regiment, was selected in April, 1900, for the command of a brigade, in which position he has done much hard work and proved himself a resolute and capable commander.

Colonel T E Stephenson, Essex Regiment, is possessed of excellent soldierly qualities.  He has commanded the 18th Brigade throughout, and with it has borne an honourable part in the campaign.

Colonel Lord Chesham, Imperial Yeomanry, as one of the prime movers for the employment of Yeomanry in the field, and more particularly as one of the general officers commanding the Yeomanry with distinction and dash, I owe him a debt of gratitude difficult to express, but none the less deeply felt.

Colonel Brabant has been in chief command of the Colonial troops from the Cape Colony, which, amongst other distinguished actions, furnished the contingent which, under Lieutenant Colonel Dalgety, so gallantly defended Wepener.  Colonel Brabant is a fine leader of men; he represents the true Imperial feeling in the Cape, and  aided by his fellow-colonists, has furnished an object-lesson in loyalty and devotion to the Crown.

Colonel Dartnell, as GOC Natal colonists, has maintained the best traditions of the Regular forces, to which he formerly belonged.  His name stands very high in the estimation of the colonists of Natal, and he possesses the greatest influence over the natives.  His advice was of much assistance in the earliest actions of the war, afterwards during the siege of Ladysmith, and finally in the general advance through the Biggarsberg to Laing's Nek, when Natal was cleared of the enemies of the Queen.

Colonel G G Cunningrham has been in command of a brigade in the Rustenberg district for some months.  He has acquitted himself well and to my satisfaction.  I consider him a promising commander.

Colonel B T Mahon has, on several occasions, displayed soldier-like qualities when in command of mounted troops, especially when in command of the flying column for the relief of Mafeking.  He has a quick and good eye for country.

Colonel H Cholmondeley did excellent service as commander of the CIV Mounted Infantry.  He proved himself on many occasions thoroughly well qualified for this responsible post, and has earned the warmest commendations both for himself and his men from all of the GOC's with whom he has served.

Colonel St G Henry, Northumberland Fusiliers, has repeatedly shown to advantage as a leader of men, and, as commanding officer of 4th Corps of Mounted Infantry, has done excellent work.

Lieutenant Colonel M F Rimingrton, 6th Dragoon Guards, rendered very exceptional service with a specially raised corps of scouts.  He had an intimate knowledge of the whole of the Orange River Colony, and no hardship was too severe, or peril too serious, to deter him from pushing his reconnaissances far to the front or flanks of the force to which he was attached.

Lieutenant Colonel H Plumer, York and Lancaster Regiment, was sent out on special service to Rhodesia in June, 1899, since which time he has been constantly in the field.  He raised and organised a corps of irregulars, and moved on Mafeking, and acted in conjunction with Colonel Mahon in the relief of that town.  He has since been actively engaged in the Transvaal, and has consistently done good work, not only as a soldier, but as an administrator of a high order.

Lieutenant Colonel J Spens, 2nd Shropshire Light Infantry, has on several occasions commanded a brigade in the field.  He is reported on as never raising difficulties, and always carrying out his orders with good sense and great determination.

Lieutenant Colonel E A Alderson, Royal West Kent Regiment, commanded the 1st Corps of Mounted Infantry from the beginning of the war.  He evinced such special aptitude for this most important work that I entrusted him with a brigade of mounted infantry, which I have every confidence he will command with success.

Lieutenant Colonel T D Pilcher, Bedford Regiment, has, whilst in command of the 3rd Mounted Infantry, shown remarkable merit as a leader.  Although a young officer, he is full of resource, capable of devising an excellent scheme, and resolute enough to put it into execution.

Lieutenant Colonel H L Dawson, ISC, is an officer possessing considerable experience of cavalry work in the field.  He in the first instance commanded Roberts's Horse, and afterwards commanded the 5th Corps of Mounted Infantry with credit during a period in which it was continually engaged with the enemy.

Captain H de Lisle, DSO, Durham Light Infantry, commanded 2nd Corps of Mounted Infantry throughout.  He is one of the best of the many deserving junior officers which this war has brought into prominence, and possesses in a very marked degree the qualities of resolution, quickness, and daring which are so necessary to the successful leading of mounted men.

Major W Roes, Durham Light Infantry, has always played a distinguished part in command of 8th Corps of Mounted Infantry.  I much regret the loss of his services, which I trust may only be temporary, from a severe wound which he received whilst very gallantry commanding his men in an important and successful action.  [Marker p40/2]

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel Le Gallais, whose death I deeply regret, served during the war in command of a mounted corps, and also as chief staff officer to Mounted Infantry Division.  In both these capacities he rendered brilliant service, and gave every promise of rising to the highest rank as a cavalry leader.

Major N Legge, DSO, 20th Hussars, commanded 6th Corps of Mounted Infantry throughout.  He, at all times and in all places, did most excellent service, and was a capable, painstaking, and gallant leader.  I deeply regret the early death of this most promising officer.

Major A W Thorneycroft, Royal Scots Fusiliers, in command of a regiment of mounted infantry, has already been brought to notice by Sir Redvers Buller.  Since coming under my immediate command he has gained my confidence as a most gallant and capable leader.

Brevet Major E G T Bainbridge, East Kent Regiment, has commanded 7th Corps of Mounted Infantry throughout.  He is a very promising young officer, who knows how to handle mounted men with judgment and dash.

Major Colln Mackenzie, Seaforth Highlanders, is a very promising officer.  He was appointed Military Governor of Johannesburg as soon as that city was occupied.  Since that time many difficult problems have been brought before him for solution.  In dealing with these he has displayed great judgment and force of character, and has thereby rendered valuable service.

Major G J Younghusband, ISC, commanded 3rd Battalion Imperial Yeomanry under Lord Methuen throughout; he is an officer of wide experience and great ability, and Lord Methuen speaks in the highest terms of his capacity as a commander.

From Captain Casson's report on Boer attack on Modderfontein, January 31:-

TWEEBOSCH, March 7, 1902.

Lieutenant General Lord Methnen, in his despatch dated Klerksdorp, March 13, 1902, reporting on the engagement which took place on March 7 between Tweebosch and Leeuwkuil in the Lichtenburg district, says:-

I beg to draw attention to the good work done by

Major A Paris, Royal Marine Artillery, in endeavouring to keep the mounted troops in hand, and to the promptitude with which Captain Tilney, 17th Lancers, DAAG, assisted in placing the infantry round the convoy.

I would also call attention to the gallant manner in which Lieutenants Neeham and Venning, RFA, stuck to their gum.

Captain St J E Montagu, commanding detachment 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, and Lieutenant W H H Paul, commanding detachment 1st Battalion Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, held on until further resistance was impossible.  Civil Surgeon Prentice with the rearguard, and Captain Thurston, Royal Army Medical Corps, with the guns, continued bandaging the wounded throughout the engagement.

Colonel E Townsend, CB, my PMO, remained in the fighting line until he had received three wounds; he has, from the commencement of the campaign, always acted most gallantly.

Captain Fernyhough did good work with the rearguard during the action.  He has been of very great value to me ever since he has served under me.

It may be that I have omitted to bring to notice some who distinguished themselves during the action, and that Major Paris can supply this deficiency.


In a despatch dated March 1, 1902, Lord Roberts submits the following additional names of officers, non-commissioned officers, men, nurses, and civilians, who have rendered meritorious service, but the investigation of whose cases for special mention was not sufficiently advanced to admit of their claims being considered in time for inclusion in his Lordship's despatch of September 4, 1901, and he requests that the mentions bear date November 29, 1900, the same as those in that despatch.  His Lordship adds, "I thought it desirable to allow such a period to elapse before forwarding my final recommendations, as would enable me to receive representations from general and commanding officers in the field on behalf of those whose names might have been overlooked in my previous despatches, and whose services were deemed worthy of recognition":-

From Lord Kitchener's despatch dated Pretoria, April 8,1902:-

Lieutenant Colonel Colenbrander's column was brought up from Krugersdorp by rail to Pietersburg, and on March 27 was able to move out from the latter place to effect the relief of Fort Edward.  On the 28th Colonel Colenbrander undertook a long night march from Dwars River, which terminated at daybreak on the 29th in the complete surprise of the enemy, who fled in an easterly direction with a loss of three killed and four captured.

At Tweebosch, March 7, the section of the 38th Battery RFA was left unprotected, but the detachment gallantly continued to serve the guns until every man, except Lieutenant Nesham, was killed or wounded.  This young officer, so Lord Methuen is informed, was then summoned to surrender, and on his refusing to do so was also shot down.  ...  A party of some 40 men, under Major Paris, established themselves in an isolated kraal about 800 yards from the convoy, from which they endeavoured to support the Infantry to the best of their ability ...  Several parties held out to the last, notably the one at the kraal, commanded by Major Paris.

Canadian Mounted Rifles-The heaviest loss at Brakspruit, March 3,1901 fell upon this regiment, who, in this their first fight of importance since landing, displayed the utmost bravery and determination.  Lieutenant Bruce Carruthers especially distinguished himself.  Being in command of a detachment of the rearguard when coming into camp, he remained out in a position of observation, in which he eventually found himself isolated and surrounded by a large body of the enemy.  Rejecting all idea of surrender, however, his small patrol of 21 men fought stubbornly on to the end, no less than six of their number (including Lieutenant Carruthers) being killed and 12 wounded.  There have been fewer finer instances of heroism in the whole course of the campaign.

From Lord Kitchener's despatch, dated Cape Town June 23:-

I have the honour to submit a final despatch which covers the period between the signature of the terms of peace at Pretoria and my departure from Cape Town.  In this I have endeavoured to acknowledge some small portion of the kind assistance or loyal service rendered me by civilians and soldiers during my command in South Africa.

I well understand that the accompanying list, which is in continuation of the other lists submitted periodically by me of departmental, staff, and regimental officers who have, in my opinion, rendered exceptionally good service during the campaign, is incomplete, and that, notwithstanding all my care, there must necessarily be a proportion of officers omitted who have rendered equal, or even better, service than those who have been mentioned.  This, however, is the fortune of war, and will, I am sure, be well understood by the Army I have been so proud to command.

In the first place I wish to convey to his Excellency the High Commissioner my cordial thanks for the past, and my best wishes for the future.  In the many difficult situations in which I have had to co-operate with Lord Milner it has been the greatest relief to me to feel that I could always rely upon his unfailing sympathy and ungrudging assistance.

I find it difficult in the short space at my disposal to acknowledge the deep obligation of the Army in South Africa to the Governments of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Cape Colony, and Natal.  I will only say here that no request of mine was ever refused by any of these Governments, and that their consideration and generosity were only equalled by the character and quality of the troops they sent to South Africa, or raised in that country.

I am greatly indebted to Admiral Moore, the Commander of H M's Naval Forces in South African waters, for the kind manner in which he has always endeavoured to meet the requirements of the Army in the field.

I have already, in a farewell order, expressed to Major General Baden-Powell my deep appreciation of the services rendered by the South African Constabulary, but I am glad to have this opportunity to again testify to the good work rendered by this fine body of men.

Sir Richard Solomon, KCMG KC, legal adviser, has been much more than a legal adviser to me; his quickness and his ability, joined to his intimate knowledge of South Africa and its people, have always been fully and loyally placed at my disposal.

I beg to take this opportunity of acknowledging with gratitude the obligations under which the Army in South Africa has been placed by the ungrudging assistance given me by Mr T R Price, CMG, and the staff of the Cape Government Railway, as well as by Sir David Hunter, KCMG, and the staff of the Natal Government Railway.

Major General (local Lieutenant General) Sir I S M Hamilton, KCB, DSO.  At much personal inconvenience, Lord Roberts lent me his military secretary, Sir Ian Hamilton, as my Chief of Staff.  His high soldierly qualities are already well known, and his reputation does not require to be established now.  I am much indebted to him for his able and constant support to me as Chief of Staff, also for the marked skill and self-reliance he showed later, when directing operations in the Western Transvaal.

Brevet Colonel H I W Hamilton, ADC DSO, Military Secretary, has displayed most untiring zeal in the performance of his duties; his reliability, accuracy, and unfailing attention to business are deserving of my special recognition.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel W N Congreve, VC, Rifle Brigade, has been my Private Secretary since I took over the chief command; during that period he has dealt with many troublesome matters to my complete satisfaction.

Major General W F Kelly, KCB, has an unrivalled knowledge of regulation and precedent, whereby his advice has been of great value to me in a time when my mind was perforce occupied with important operations.

Brevet Colonel J S Ewart, Cameron Highlanders, is a staff officer of considerable ability.  He has rendered good service in connection with the distribution and movements of troops.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel W R Birdwood, 11th Bengal Lancers.  This young officer has held a difficult position as AAG, Mounted Troops, and responsible adviser as to the distribution of remounts.  In carrying out these duties he has proved himself to possess exceptional ability, and he has shown, moreover, remarkable tact in dealing with and conciliating the various interests which he had to take into consideration.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel D Henderson, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, has held the responsible post of Director of Military Intelligence during my tenure of command, and he has invariably done his best to cope with the great difficulties of his position.

Brevet Colonel H C Sclater, CB, RA, has been my CRA throughout; he possesses an unusual combination of ability and common sense.  I consider him to be a staff officer of exceptional value, to whom all ranks of the Royal Artillery in South Africa owe much.

Colonel (local Major General) E Wood, KCB, RE, has been indefatigable in rendering me all the assistance in his power.

Brevet Major (local Lieutenant Colonel) Sir E P C Girouard, KCMG, DSO, RE, has been my principal adviser in all the numerous and intricate questions pertaining to railway administration in South Africa; he is an officer of brilliant ability, and I wish him all success in his new capacity as head of a great civil department.

Brevet Major H C Nanton, RE, has satisfactorily carried out his work in connection with armoured trains.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel W J R Wickham, ISC, as AAG Transport, has frequently had to grapple with sudden emergencies and many difficulties.  In a campaign of this sort his post has been a most responsible one, and I recognize the hard work and ability he has displayed in rendering his department efficient.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel (local Colonel) H G Morgan, DSO, ASC, has brought much ability and administrative experience to bear on the unprecedented task of supplying not only an army, but also a proportion of the civil population inhabiting the extensive territories in which military operations were being conducted.

Surgeon-General Sir W D Wilson, KCMG, has given me satisfaction as regards his supervision of his own department, as well as the advice he has given me on sanitary matters.

Colonel (local Principal Ordnance Officer) E B Appelbe, AOD, has conducted the affairs of his department with energy and forethought; his reorganisation of the department in the second phase of the campaign has worked with great success.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel (local Colonel) W H Birkbeck, as Assistant Inspector of Remounts, has had the administration of a large department, which he'practically had to form during the progress of hostilities; he has shown considerable ability, and is perturbed by nothing.  In carrying out his duties he has been much assisted by Colonel C J Long, BA, who possesses exceptional experience in horse management, and has done very good service by his inspections of horse depots in South Africa.

Lieutenant General P S, Lord Methnen, KCB, KCVO, CMG, has done more than most officers towards maintaining throughout this campaign the high standard for personal courage, modesty, and humanity which characterise the British Army.  I share his own deep regret that his wounds have prevented him from remaining in the field until the conclusion of peace.

Major General (local Lieutenant General) Sir J D P French, KCB has had a most difficult task to carry out; his willingness to accept responsibility, and his bold and sanguine disposition, have relieved me from my many anxieties, and, after I had appointed him to conduct the operations in Cape Colony, enabled me to devote myself more completely than would otherwise have been possible to the conduct of operations in the territories of the late Republics.

Lieutenant General Sir C Tucker, KCB I am indebted to this officer, who has never feared responsibility or failed in giving emphatic pronouncement to the good common sense of which he is possessed.

Lieutenant General Honourable N G Lyttelton, KCB, has latterly commanded in Natal, and I am sure that in his new position he will deal with the many important administrative questions which must now arise in the Transvaal and Orange River Colony to the satisfaction of all concerned.

Major General C E Knox, KCB, has given me satisfaction; first, when in command of a group of mobile columns operating in the Orange River Colony, and latterly as General Officer Commanding, Bloemfontein, where he has carried out his responsible duties with ability and discretion.

Colonel (local Major General) R A P Clements, DSO, ADC, is possessed of fine soldierly qualities, which his misfortunes have served rather to accentuate than to obscure.

Brevet Colonel (local Major General) T E Stephenson, CB, is an excellent officer, who has displayed good sense wherever he has been employed.

Major General F W Kitchener is an exceptionally keen and energetic officer, who has done good service, first of all in the Northern and Eastern, and latterly in the Western, Transvaal.

Brevet Colonel (local Major General) J G  Maxwell, KCB CMG DSO, has been Governor of Pretoria until comparatively recently, when he was transferred to the command of the Western District; he has an energetic mind and a sound judgment, which, coupled with his kindly and considerate disposition, have enabled him to render valuable service.

Major General B M Hamilton, KCB, is possessed of qualities of boldness, energy, and resolution in no common degree; his work has of late lain chiefly in the Eastern Transvaal, and he has had the good fortune repeatedly to deal serious blows to the enemy in that quarter. [Marker p110/2]

Colonel (local Major General) E L Elliot, KCB, DSO, has held a very important command in the east of the Orange River Colony, and has worked hard, and with some measure of success, to subdue the enemy in that

Major General Sir H H Settle, KCB, DSO, has rendered valuable service in the difficult position of General Officer Commanding, Cape Colony.  I have every cause to feel grateful to him for the judgment and tact which he has displayed when dealing with the innumerable difficult questions which have arisen in connection with the administration of martial law and other kindred matters.

Major General M W Willson, CB, did useful work whilst in charge of Krugersdorp district, and subsequently in command of the district west of Johannesburg, where he carried out the duties of supplying the mobile columns in that neighbourhood.  In the construction of blockhouse lines he showed considerable capacity for organisation.

Brevet Colonel (local Brig -General) H C O Plumer, CB, ADC, throughout the campaign has invariably displayed military qualifications of a very high order, few officers have rendered better service.

Brevet Colonel (local Brigadier General) J Spens, CB, ADC, has proved himself on many occasions a reliable brigadier.

Brevet Colonel (local Brigadier General) M O Little, 9th Lancers, has twice held command of British cavalry brigades, and has proved himself a capable leader of mounted troops in the field.

Brevet Colonel R G Kekewich, CB, has throughout this long campaign maintained his high reputation as a fine soldier of character, loyalty, and discretion; he is well qualified to hold high command.

Brevet Colonel A N Rochfort, CB, RA, is fearless of responsibility, never makes difficulties, and has, I think, all the qualifications for a leader in the field.

Brevet Colonel C W Park, ADC, Devon Regiment, is a deserving officer, who has done good service throughout the campaign.

Brevet Colonel H J Scobell, 5th Lancers, is a cavalry leader of ability and resolution.

Brevet Colonel M F Rimington, CB, 6th Dragoons, is a leader of mounted troops who is particularly well qualified for the conduct of special and independent raids or enterprises; his knowledge of the theatre of operations, his energy, and his soldierly instincts have enabled him to render exceptional services.

Brevet Colonel J S S Barker, BA, is an excellent column commander, ready to take responsibility and to disregard unnecessary details.

Brevet Colonel Honourable J H G Byng, MVO, 10th Hussars, has been an ideal commander of an irregular corps.

Brevet Colonel Sir H Rawlinson, Baronet, CB, Coldstream Guards, possesses the qualities of staff officer and column commander in the field.  His characteristics will always ensure him a front place in whatever he sets his mind to.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel (local Colonel) A W Thorneycroft, CB, Royal Scots Fusiliers, is an absolutely reliable officer of great experience, common sense, and force of character.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel (local Colonel) E H H Allenby, CB, 6th Dragoons, has proved himself a popular and capable cavalry brigadier.

Lieutenant Colonel (local Colonel) D Haig, CB, 17th Lancers, is, in my opinion, one of the most thoughtful and best educated of our cavalry officers in his own rank; he has also shown considerable skill in handling men in the field.

Brevet Lieutenant Colonel P D V Wing, RHA, has a high reputation for boldness and dash; he has rendered good service.

Captain (local Lieutenant Colonel) H De B De Lisle, DSO, Durham Light Infantry, is an officer of remarkable force of character; he has soldierly qualties, and is a fine leader.
