CANADIAN VOLUNTEERS
SOUTH AFRICA 1900
WESTERN CANADA

Dear Reader:

The following names have been taken from various newspapers from various locations around Western Canada. They are stated to be descriptions of the Volunteers for various units that went overseas for the Boer War. In most cases they are as written with a few changes to names which I have cross-referenced to the correct spelling or initial. I have also added the Rank, Regimental Number, The Unit, The Next-of-Kin (if not already stated) and the Medal entitlement. I hope that this can be of some use to collectors of Canadian Boer War Medals. If you have any of the medals to the men mentioned below I would be greatly interested, I have already found 8.

PINCHER CREEK VOLUNTEERS
LEAVE FOR THE TRANSVAAL

The showing made by Pincher Creek was an admirable one, and is a record that can never be rivaled with considerable pride by its citizens. Fifty-three volunteered for service, and out of that number thirty-three were accepted, and their admirers are not at all backward in saying that they are the finest collection of young men in the contingent. All are good riders, splendid shots with the six shooter and rifle, used to any amount of endurance, as they are chiefly ranchers and cowboys, and just the kind of men that will give good service, particularly for scouting purposes, at the seat of the war. Pincher Creek people state that they could provide another fifty men if called upon to do so. Thirty-five horses were shipped from that place.

The following is the muster roll: Arthur Clements Raper, Robert John Kerr, George Bolster, Goodwin Norris Gould, John Reginald Redpath, Thomas Morton Ramsey, John S. Hewetson, James Frederick Morden, T. G. Wilson, R. F. Dickson, W. T. Skinner, H. A. Gunn, M. S. Wilson, C. G. Mead, G. L. Dore, W. M. Galway, H. T. Green, H. W. Tucker, N. Sowle, J. A. Donnelly, T. R. Miles, H. V. W. Miles, Joseph Mongeon, A. S. Johnston, F. G. Glover, A. Olson and Ovide Smith. Four more men will follow shortly. (My note Morden and Smith were both mentioned in the book The Great Karoo)

They were given a big sendoff in the shape of a supper and smoking concert in the Brick Hotel on New Years Day, when 125 sat down to enjoy themselves. The program was a good one, and all speeches were full of patriotism. The speech of the evening was made by Mr. Hyde in proposing the "Pincher Creek Volunteers." The other speakers were Messers. Morden, Cox, Schofield, Herron, Canon Smith, Insp. Davidson, Kettles, Kemmis and members of the contingent. Dr. Malcolmson sang a topical song, "Not the Only Pebble on the Beach," written by Mr. Kemmis, and received vociferous applause. Mr. McKenzie sang "The Soldiers of the Empire," his own composition, and was loudly encored. With songs and speeches an evening was spent which will be long remembered by all present.

On Tuesday morning the contingent paraded in order to say good-bye to the ladies, who for lack of space were not able to be present the night before. Mrs. Nash, assisted by Misses Morden and Bull, presented each member with a housewife made by the ladies. Mr. Schofield addressed a few words of farewell, and the Rev. Mr. Grant followed with a heartfelt speech, Rev. Canon Smith, as arranged by the committee, said farewell on behalf of the district, and never has he spoken so well.

Mike, Some years ago I purchased a 1896 British South Africa Company medal to Trooper William Elliot Brand, Salisbury Field Force. Of interest to Canadians is Brand,s attestation at Pitsani Camp November 1895 serving in C Troop MMP , The Jameson Raid. He was subsequently captured by the Boers and repatriated to UK per the Roslin Castle at Durban 24th Jan 1896. Brand died of Enteric while serving with the Royal Canadian Dragoons 9-7-1900 at Blomfontein.
Are there any other Canadians known to have fought/served in the Jameson Raid?
Bruce.

If you have look at this page: www.angloboerwar.com/other-information/8...754-the-jameson-raid

You can search the notes for Canada and Canadian. It shows one Canadian and one Englishman living in Nova Scotia.

Included on this list is William John Brand, a South African.
