    • Cleland Bulstrode Cumberlege 1875-1946 was awarded the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) in 1915 for "distinguished service in the field."

      CUMBERLEGE, Cleland Bulstrode, Capt., was born 5 June, 1875, at Nagpore, India, son of Colonel A.B. [Alexander Bulstrode] Cumberlege (Indian Army) and of E.F. Broadwood. He was educated at Eastbourne College, and joined the Imperial Yeomanry in Nov. 1899, for service in the South African War, 1900-1902. He served as Trooper in the Imperial Yeomanry, employed with Mounted Infantry; took part in the operations in the Transvaal, west of Pretoria, July to 29 Nov. 1900, including action at Elands River (4 to 16 Aug.); in Cape Colony, north of Orange River, including action at Fabers Put; in the Transvaal 30 Nov. 1900, to June, 1901; also in Orange River Colony, Sept. 1901, to May, 1902, (Queen’s Medal with three clasps, and King’s Medal with two clasps). He was given a commission in the Bedfordshire Regt. 27 July, 1901; became Lieutenant 23 March, 1904; Captain 1 April, 1910; was Adjutant, Militia, 22 Nov. 1911, to 30 Oct. 1914. He served in the European War, and was promoted Major 12 Nov. 1915; was Temporary Lieutenant Colonel 5 Nov. 1916, to 13 July, 1917. He was recommended for good work at the Battle of Neuve Chapelle in March, 1915, when he was severely wounded.
