On 14 February 1901 the Victorian Department of Defence (CA1340) helped the Marquis to enrol over 200 men into his Scottish Horse. Each of these men had to sign two documents acknowledging that neither they nor their families had any right to claim compensation from the Victorian Government for matters arising out of their service in South Africa. Most of these documents have made it into the Archives’ custody and now form the records series A6394.
