Ross's Scouts was a white mounted unit formed in British East Africa (BEA - Kenya and Uganda) after the declaration of the Great War (WW1) into what has become known as The Forgotten War/Front.
Major Charles Joseph Ross DSO
He ran away as a child to America where he lived with Indians, & then was a scout for the US Army in three Indian wars. He then joined the Canadian North West Mounted Police for six years & was Chief Scout during the Riel Rebellion. In the South African War he was awarded a DSO whilst riding with Roberts Horse & he later commanded the Canadian Scouts.
believes that he may have joined his old pals Paddy Driscoll & Frederick Courtney Selous in 25th Royal Fusiliers (The Legion of Frontiersmen) & become involved in Intelligence duties. Certainly he was convalescing back in UK in 1917 when the remnants of 25th Royal Fusiliers also were.
After the war Ross re-joined the BEA Game Department, working from his home in Eldama Ravine, Rift Valley Province in what is now Kenya.
