QSA (0) (impressed: MR. S. McKEOWN BROWN. MAIL & EMPIRE.),

Stanley McKeown Brown was attached to the Royal Canadian Regiment during his time in South Africa. He wrote a book about his time with them entitled “With the Royal Canadians” and in it he describes how he was wounded in the action at Zand River.

“The bullets coming my way were cracking a little too lively for pleasure. About one hundred yards behind the Canadians’ firing line I sat down, at ten o’clock, to rest, and here it was that I was hit in the right thigh by a Mauser bullet. Then I was taken back to camp.”

He is listed on the QSA medal roll as Correspondent for the Mail and Empire and the medal was issued on 17th July 1903.

QSA (4) Cape Colony, Wepener, Transvaal, Wittebergen (Capt. J. N. Greenlees. Col: Defence Force.);
QSA (0) (Mr. J. N. Greenlees. “Times.”) officially re-impressed naming

James Neilson Greenlees was born in Glasgow on June 1852 at Glasgow, and was educated at Blair Lodge School and Edinburgh University. He arrived in South Africa 1871, and developed various business interests, including diamond prospecting, stockbroking, and running a wholesale mercantile business in Newcastle, Natal, where he was head of Municipality in 1883. Prior to the outbreak of the Boer War he was residing in Johannesburg, where he was a Director of several companies and was on the committee of the Stock Exchange.

Following the outbreak of the Boer War Greenlees was appointed War Correspondent to The Times and was with General French in the Colesberg District. He also joined the Colonial Defence Force under General Brabant in December 1899, serving as the General’s Aide de Camp, and went through all the division’s fighting, including the siege of Wepener, until January 1902, when, on the re-organisation of the Colonial Defence Force, he retired and returned to Johannesburg.
