Thanks for spotting this Trajers

The Mail doesn't appear to mention the Singapore Mutiny incident which led to the Kamerun deployment: http://gweaa.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Atonement-5LI-in-German-Kamerun.pdf

Charles Sumner Stooks later received a DSO for gallantry displayed when the battalion moved to East Africa: http://gweaa.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/5LI-in-East-Africa.pdf

Cornhill Magazine published Stooks' diary (or parts of it) and it is available to freely download here: https://archive.org/details/newcornhill47londuoft
