I have been searching the medal rolls and came across this unit,The English Composite Cyclist Company which originally comprised of five officers and 103 other ranks, all were volunteers from most of the English infantry volunteer battalions (and a few Welsh), a seperate Scottish Cyclist Company existed. Has anyone any information on them?

Cannot help you much but will watch this thread myself as I have a medal to the English Composite Cycle Company in my collection.....

I do not know if you are a member of the Anglo Boer War forum but I am going to cut and paste your question there......

There was also the Cape Colony Cyclist Corps a unit which seemed to be a jack of all trades as well as a cyclist company of the Queensland Mounted Infantry which was eventually converted to horses
