In line with the Topic, IL would offer the following examples for viewing and comment:
QSA with clasps "Relief of Kimberley", "Paardeburg", "Dreifontein", "Johannesburg", "Diamond Hill", "Belfast"
Impressed to "5, Tpr. L.Bramley, C.IN.C. Bdygd"
Trooper Lionel Bramley served with Lord Roberts' Bodyguard between 23/1/00 and 24/6/00 and his medal was issued 23/2/05. A quick check on the original members of Lord Roberts' Bodyduard gives a total of seventy-one. Clasp entitlements appear to vary a little.

Neither French or Haig actually served in GWSA in 1914, regarding luminaries, sadly, whilst Haig certainly influenced a great many, I doubt if his own brand of flair, in particular, that shown in South Africa would inspire very many.

I wonder why the difference in unit title; "General Officer Commanding" vs "Commander in Chief"? The title "Constable" indicates that Constable A.M.P. Harris was a Military Policemen and since French was replaced by Haig in December of 1915, Harris could have guarded one or the other. Or both. As Forum members would know, both French and Haig were luminaries during the South African campaign.
On the subject of bodyguards during the South African campaign, The Buxton publication contains the Supplementary rolls of individuals in F.I.D.; which include an entry for one "A.Macfarlane, civilian", with marginal note "no bar, for services in connection with the personal safety of Earl Roberts and Milner".
