QSA (1) Defence of Ladysmith (409 Tpr: E. M. Finlayson. Colonial Scouts.)

Edwin Mitchell Finlayson was born about 1874 and attested for the Colonial Scouts on 9 December 1899; sold with copied roll entry confirming his eligibility for ‘Relief of Ladysmith’ clasp, as opposed to that for the ‘Defence of Ladysmith’.

QSA (2) Wepener, Relief of Ladysmith (26 Tpr: W.Way. Colonial Scouts.) RoL loose.

William Way enlisted in the Colonial Scouts at Pietermaritzburg on 27 Nov 1899. He was 28 years of age, a solicitor's clerk and lived at Richmond. He discharged on 22 January 1900. The medal roll records that W.Way was awarded the QSA with clasps Wepener and Relief of Ladysmith.

He was not entitled to the Wepener clasp.
