Driscoll Scouts White Metal Shoulder Title as worn in Boer War

A stylised DS cut from sheet metal (possibly silver plated as no signs of rust) with two original hoop style loops to the reverse. Circa 3.5cm wide and 1.6cm tall. Scarce.

Apparently Daniel Driscoll approached Kitchener and requested permission to form a mounted Scout troop to combat the fast moving Boer commandos. Kitchener apparently refused to consider the request and Driscoll was effectively sidelined without an appropriate supply of horses. Eventually Driscoll and a number of accomplices descended on a regular British unit and commandeered sufficient horses to supply his band of volunteers. The commanding officer complained to Kitchener who immediately ordered that Driscoll and his band be pursued. With his legendary scouting skills he eluded his pursuers and eventually received official recognition to be known as the "Driscoll's Scouts" and went on to play a key role in many major battles during the Boer War.

One account of note on 12th July 1900 the 'Daily Telegraph' correspondent reported: "Captain Driscoll, leader of the Scouts bearing his name, captured four armed Boers single-handed and brought them prisoners into camp. This was a splendidly plucky feat. Driscoll's Scouts are rendering General Rundle most valuable service".

Disbanded 1902
