William Remington/Rimington (no relation to the C/O) initially enlisted on 13 Nov 1899 and was discharged as a Trooper on 31 January 1901.
He re-joined his old unit on 6 June 1901 with rank Sergeant and served until 23 Dec 1901.
Some 25 years ago I had another 9-bar QSA to RG, but it will take some searching to find the name of the recipient because I sold it before my computer medal data-base was operative.
