Does anyone have any info on the 10th IY, namely where they were recruited from and which Boer War areas they served in?

Cheers mike

It depends whether you mean the 10th Company or the 10th Battalion. 10 Co was the Sherwood Rangers, serving with the 3rd Battalion IY. 10 Bn comprised 37 and 38 (Bucks), 39 (Berks) and 40 (Oxfordshire) Cos. There's a substantial book on the 3rd Battalion, covering the activities of the 1st and 2nd contingents. There's a book by Gaskell of 38 Co, and Peel of 40 Co, who served in the first contingent but neither served the full year with their company. There is very little information available on the 2nd contingent of the 10th Battalion.

Most Boer War IY histories are rare and expensive. It might be possible to help further if I knew the reason for your interest in the 10th IY.

Many thanks! I was watching 2 items on Ebay for this unit but i got completely blown out of the water on bidding I'm guessing people knew how rare they were and they were silver!

Cheers Mike
