WW1 DCM, QSA & TRIO, 5th R.SCOTS.FUS & IMP.YEO, STRETCHER BEARER

DCM, QSA 1899-1902 with clasps for Cape Colony & South Africa 1902,
1914-15 Trio with MID oakleaves
To- 7737 / 240651.CPL.J.KNOX.5TH.R.SCOTS.FUS (on the DCM & trio) & 37870.PTE.J.KNOX.139TH.COY.31ST.IMPERIAL.YEOMANRY (on the QSA)
The recipient served with fincastle's horse in the Boer war & served with the 5th territorial force battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers in WW1
He was awarded the DCM in the London gazette 21-6-1916 with the following citation
For conspicuous gallantry & devotion to duty.When in charge of stretcher-bearers, He was on duty for 50 hours under heavy fire & set a fine example.
I suspect that this is a Gallipoli award but no theatre is stated in the gazette. However the recipient first landed on Gallipoli 6-6-1915 & his battalion left Gallipoli in January 1916 but served in Egypt until April 1918 so if it is not a Gallipoli award? it is a Mediteranean theatre award.
The award of the mention in despatches for service in the Mediterranean / Gallipoli whilst under Sir Charles Monro's command was published in the London gazette 13-7-1916
