    Recommendations sent by Maj Gen Baden Powell to Gen Lord Kitchener, dated 4th August 1902.

    For Gallantry Badges: “C” Division SAC. Captain Cornwall, 293 Sgt WR Pedley.


    “On 8th February 1902 Capt. Cornwall went with ten NCO’s and men to bring in a wagon etc. on Auge Wyst. 


    While doing so he was attacked by a force of Boers. Captain Cornwall and Sgt. Pedley advanced to a good position, which they held against the Boers in order to cover the retreat of the wagon and their party. 

    They were eventually cut off and surrounded by the enemy but made a good attempt to dash through them. 


    Captain Cornwall’s horse was hit and Sgt. Pedley returned and took him up on his horse under heavy fire.

    This horse was then shot and both Officers were then captured”.
    War Office Records refer.
