    Extract from “With the Inniskilling Dragoons” by Yardley, 1904:


    “Late afternoon, a patrol under Captain Jackson, 7th Dragoon Guards, attached to the Inniskillings, reconnoitred towards Rensburg.

    They came under heavy fire and Captain Jackson was mortally wounded. Sgt Broadwood and Pte McKinnon
    gallantly stuck with him, amidst a hail of bullets, and successfully carried him in.”


    DCM (Edw VII): 2980 Pte McKinnon. 6th Dragoons; 
    QSA, 5 clasps CC, OFS, Jhburg, D Hill, Belf: 2980 Pte D. McKinnon 6/Drgns.


    On the QSA Roll page (dated 9 May 1903) McKinnon was initially shown as entitled to only the SA’01 clasp. This was subsequently altered and the issue of a 2-clasp KSA was authorised on 15 Sept 1905. However, it is noted that the KSA was returned on 5 March 1914.
