I have been searching the medal rolls and came across this unit, The English Composite Cyclist Company which originally comprised of five officers and 103 other ranks, all were volunteers from most of the English infantry volunteer battalions (and a few Welsh), a separate Scottish Cyclist Company existed. Has anyone any information on them?
I would be interested in anything that can be found......

Hey Mike, I just completed an e-mail to you and then opened this Topic. If you look up the SELKIRK TRIBUTE , you will note the one I once owned was to Sgt LINTON, who was in the Scottish C C. It's in HIBBARD but I don't recall if he said much about the CC.
I believe I did place/add to a thread on the Scottish CC.
Cyclist John Kemp, also of Selkirk, received his medal and an inscribed watch, alongside Sergeant Linton and 16 other volunteers, in Selkirk market place, on Saturday 27th September 1902. [Southern Reporter, 2.10.1902]
