Anglo Boer War Mentions in despatches - Army

LORD ROBERTS' RECOMMENDATIONS, April 2, 1901. In his despatch dated London, April 2, 1901, Earl Roberts brings forward the names of some who have in their civil or military capacity most prominently distinguished themselves, or whose services have come under his personal observation. In a later despatch his lordship proposes to deal with officers and other ranks of the Regular forces whose names have been brought forward by general officers under whom they have served, and with all ranks of Militia, Imperial Yeomanry, Volunteers, Indian and Civil Lists, and he trusts that the inevitable delay in publishing their names will not affect the date of their promotion or reward.

For Meritorious Services. In bringing the following to notice for meritorious services performed, Lord Roberts says it is impossible at this date to make the list complete, and junior officers especially will be brought to notice later.

Roman Catholic Convent, Bloemfontein-Mother Superior Francis de Sales; Sisters Adrian, Alphonsus, Evangelista, Ignatius, Lucian, Magdalen, Mary Louisa, Melanie, Philomena, Raphael, St Anne, St Leopold, St Louis, Stanislaus, Teresa.
