Trooper C. Balboni was entitled to the clasps 'Cape Colony', 'Orange Free State', 'Johannesburg' and 'Diamond Hill'.
Loch's Horse was raised in London in March 1900 by Lord Loch, a former Governor of Cape Colony. It occupied a unique place as the only privately raised and funded Regiment of the South Africa Mounted Irregular Forces and its 220 members presented a diverse mixture of society. The qualification for joining was possession of either military or African experience and the Troopers ranged from retired Army Officers to former Foreign Legionnaires.
