Henry Frederick Julius Rose was a long service member of the South African Colonial Forces, and served as a Trooper with ‘L’ Troop of the Bulawayo Field Force Corps during the operations in Rhodesia which lasted from 24th March to 31st December 1896, with 112 men of his unit being present during these operations.
Rose then saw service during the Boer War, initially as a Corporal (No.960) with the 1st Battalion, Kitchener’s Fighting Scouts, and was present on operations in the Cape Colony, the Orange Free State, and the Transvaal, before transferring as a Scout to the Field Intelligence Department, and seeing further service right through to the end of the conflict. Rose who then reverted to the 1st Kitchener’s Fighting Scouts as a Sergeant, is confirmed as having been one of those men of the unit to be awarded the Coronation Medal 1902. In all 22 men of his unit received the Coronation Medal 1902 in Bronze. Rose was discharged from the Kitchener’s Fighting Scouts on the disbandment of the unit on 15th October 1902.
Rose once again saw service during the Great War, initially as a Conductor and later a Head Conductor with the South African Army Service Corps - Transport and Remounts. Rose went on to work as a Telephonist for the South African Department of Posts and Telegraphs, and was awarded a Gratuity of £50 for his services in 1941.
