Robert Alsop served with the 14th Hussars during the Boer War, and was reputedly serving with the 25-strong detachment under the command of Lieutenant The Honourable Hugh Grosvenor who were sent to investigate reports of Boers near Varkenskraal. It was during the ensuing ambush which Alsop is reported to have been posted missing (typed note accompanying refers). He subsequently served in the Great War in Mesopotamia from 14 November 1915, being mentioned in the despatches (London Gazette, 3 June 1919, refers) and being awarded his L.S. & G.C. by the General Officer Commanding 2nd Cavalry Brigade on 18 July 1920.
