General Service Medal 1918-62, Geo VI, clasp Palestine 4100653 Tpr C Cattanach The Greys.  In October 1938 the Scots Greys were ordered to Palestine, still a cavalry regiment mounted on their famous grey horses. Operations consisted in the cordon and search of villages, combing the hills for rebels and their hide-outs and assisting the police in the prevention of inter-racial feuds. The outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 made little immediate difference to the Regiment. By 1941 the war had taken a most unfavourable turn. After Wavell’s brilliant successes against the Italians in Abyssinia and the Western Desert, the German Afrika Korps, under Rommel, had landed in Libya and the pro-Axis Vichy French were encouraging the German occupation of Syria on the northern Palestinian border. Had the Germans been permitted to build up forces there they could, with little difficulty, have advanced through Palestine and captured the Suez Canal and the British bases in Egypt from the east. To counter this extremely serious threat scratch forces were hastily mustered and in the late spring of 1941 the Scots Greys were ordered to provide RHQ, the Machine Gun Troop and one squadron as motorised infantry. With the addition of a squadron of Staffordshire Yeomanry, they accompanied the Australians in an invasion of Syria. He was posted 4th Remount Squadron, RAVC from 25th April 1941.

Thomas Clarke was born in Holy Trinity, Chester, Cheshire and worked as a musician. Clarke attested into the British Army as a lad when aged 15 on 23rd February 1880, and having attained the age of 17 years was posted to the 3rd Battalion, Rifle Brigade on 23rd July 1881 as a Private (No.4187). Clarke was awarded his 1st Good Conduct Pay on 23rd February 1882 and appointed Bugler on 1st April 1882, but is then recorded as having deserted on 4th August 1882, but rejoined on his own accord and was placed in confinement on 27th August 1882. Clarke was tried for desertion and was sentenced to 56 days confinement on 3rd October 1882 losing his Good Conduct Pay in the process. Having been released on 28th November 1882, Clarke remained on service at home through to his being posted overseas to Egypt on 27th August 1884, with his Good Conduct Pay being restored on 28th November 1884. Clarke was present during the Nile Expedition from December 1884 through to 7th March 1885. Clarke was one of the men from the 3rd Battalion, Rifle Brigade which formed the Camel Corps and Naval Brigade column under the command of Major General Sir Herbert Stewart, KCB, which crossed the desert to Metemmeh and whose task was to then join up with the Nile steamers sent by Gordon from Khartoum. On the way, wells at Gakdul and Abu Klea would have to be captured. The first was found unoccupied hence the force was able to water and then to continue the advance on 16th January 1885. Later in the day, the scouts of the 19th Hussars reported that the wells at Abu Klea were being held. On the 17th January 1885 at severe action was fought at Abu Klea. The British force, 1500 strong, formed a square in the face of a severe attack by 10,000 Sudanese. Though the square was broken at its rear left hand corner, when order was restored, the British were able to drive off their enemy who suffered over 1000 dead. In the desperate fighting, 74 British were killed, and 94 wounded. The wounded were left with a guard at Abu Klea and the remainder continued towards the Nile. Near Metemmeh, General Stewart was mortally wounded, and was succeeded in command by Colonel Sir Charles Wilson. Fighting its way to the Nile, the force established a defensive position at Gubat. An advance towards Arab held Metemmeh was made on 21st January, but the proposed attack was cancelled. The same day the four small steamers despatched by Gordon arrived. Clarke was one of 38 men from the Rifle Brigade to receive the clasp for the battle of Abu Klea, 27 of these men being from the 3rd Battalion, the other 11 coming from the 2nd Battalion, and he was the only Bugler from his battalion to be present. In addition received the Egypt and Sudan Medal with the date 1882 - this being issued in error as he was only entitled to the Undated medal, and also received the clasp The Nile 1884-85. Clarke was posted home on 2nd August 1885, and then out to Gibraltar on 21st October 1885, and on 12th November 1885 he reverted at his own request to the rank of Private.

Clarke was then on operations in the Eastern Sudan from 1st December 1888, being present at the battle of Gemaizah on 20th December 1888. Clarke was awarded the clasp Gemaizah 1888 to add as a third clasp to his Egypt and Sudan Medal with clasps for the Nile 1884-85 and Abu Klea - this being a rare combination of clasps. Returning to Egypt on 31st January 1889, Clarke was appointed to Lance Corporal on 7th September 1889, gained his Mounted Infantry Certificate on 2nd December, and then reverted to Private on 28th December 1889, and was then posted to India on 2nd January 1890 and was awarded Good Conduct Pay on 9th July 1892.

Dhanjibhai Barjoeji Spencer was born on 20th February 1857 in India, and Anglo Indian, he was the son of an Englishman who was possibly a Medical man, and an Indian woman, and was educated at Bombay University and in England, where he gained his Licentiate of the School of Apothecaries and his Licentiate of the faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1879. Having opted for an army medical career, he was appointed as a Surgeon on 31st March 1880 into the Indian Medical Service of the Indian Army, and was then appointed as a Medical Officer to the 15th Ludhiana Sikhs, with who he then saw service in Egpyt and the Sudan during the Mahdist War during 1884 to 1885, being involved in the operations at Suakin from 1st March to 14th May 1885, and at the battle of Tofrek on 22nd March 1885, having also been present in the actions at Hashim and Tamai.

However his service in Burma resulted in Spencer being awarded the India General Service Medal 1854-1895 with two clasps for Burma 1885-7, and Burma 1887-89. He was promoted to Surgeon Major on 31st March 1892. In 1899 Spencer published his book 'A Record of Indian Fevers: with Some Hints on their Etiology, Diagnosis and Treatment', this having been published in Calcutta. Spencer was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Medical Service on 31st March 1900, and was then present with the Indian Army forces during the Boxer Rebellion in China during 1900, being ultimately appointed Senior Medical Officer at Tientsin, and being Mentioned in Despatches for gallant and distinguished services in China in the London Gazette for 14th May 1901. He was also appointed a member of the Military Order of the Dragon, an American organisation which then became international and accepted officer veterans of the Boxer Rebellion, with Spencer being listed amongst those entitled to the Medal of the Military Order of the Dragon, this is however an unofficial medal as was never worn in uniform. Spencer eventually retired in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel from the Indian Medical Service on 17th May 1910, as the London Gazette for 24th May 1910 confirms.
