QSA (1) 01 (942 Tpr. C. Culverwell. Natal Cbnrs.)

This clasp is verified on WO100/260p119. He served between 20 March 1901 and 31 May 1902. The 02 clasp is crossed through on the supplementary roll.

If it is the same man, NAAIRS records that C Culverwell committed an assault and paid a fine in 1905.

QSA (1) South Africa 1901 (447 Tptr: H. J. Tosen. Natal M.R.);
Natal 1906 (1) (Trmptr: H. J. Tosen, Natal Mtd. Rifles)

H J Tosen served in Lieutenant A G H Blamey's Ixopo Troop during the Natal Rebellion and was present for the action fought by the Natal Mounted Rifles at Nkomo, 6 May 1906. The unit history takes up the story:

'As soon as the Impi charged, Lt. Blamey realised that his Troop had first to check them by concentrated fire, then withdraw to the main body who would deal adequately with them. Bringing his troop into line facing the Zulus as they pounded down, he gave the order to dismount and fire. In a flash his men dismounted, the No. 3's took charge of the horses, and the remainder opened a deadly and accurate fire. Bugler Tosen, however, remained mounted and held Lt. Blamey's charger (a splendid horse called Scott) while the detached section, only about 50 yards in their rear also dismounted and added their fire.'
