QSA (1) Natal (Captain H.C.Simpson. F.I.D.)

Not located on roll of Field Intelligence Department, however, in the book titled 'Fields of Battle: Terrain in Military History' edited by P.Doyle, and Matthew R.Bennett it states, 'On arrival on this front, Buller set up a Field Intelligence Department including Captain A. Kenny Herbert and Captain H.C.Simpson which compiled a map of the area along the Tugela which had to be taken to advance to Ladysmith.'

Contrary to what Noble state, his QSA is listed on WO100/301p58.

The Buxton FID book shows him as having the clasps Natal and SA 1901. I also had a look at Tpr. Way (RofL and Wepener) - with a similar result to yours.
