Towards the close of 1900 and throughout 1901 Canada was represented at the front by a corps known as the Canadian Scouts, commanded by Major Howard. In December 1900 they were with General Alderson west of Pretoria and immediately gained the confidence of their leaders and were given the difficult task of scouting in front of the brigade. Major Ross got the command of the Scouts on Major Howarth's death and they continued to do splendidly under their new leader. The Canadian Scouts were with Colonel Hackett-Thompson's column in the Megaliesberg for part of the
year 1901. In July they joined a column then being organised at Heilbron under Colonel Rimington and in the war record of that leader's regiment, the Inniskilling Dragoons, there are many references to the fine work of the Canadian Scouts.
