This was a corps of specially selected men, raised by Captain R D Doyle, DSO, of the New South Wales forces.  He had served in the 6th Imperial Bushmen and the 3rd Regiment of New South Wales Bushmen.  The officers and men were not, however, restricted to those from New South Wales.  

See the forum posts on Doyle's Scouts.

The small corps did most excellent work in the latter stages of the war, and for its numbers gained a large proportion of Mentions.  These were:—
