Brabant's Horse
On 5 November 1899, Brabant raised the Light Horse regiment known as Brabant's Horse. The top strength of the unit was 600, all ranks, including South African colonials, Australians, British, Canadians. The unit saw much action against Boer commandos.
Brabant's Horse was disbanded in Cape Town on 31 December 1901.

Canadian Field Artillery served for 14 months (likely after the Brabants horse was disbanded)
It appears that as a veteran of the South African War 1899-1902 he received a land grant, which was likely in the new territories of the West.

Started his military career with the Highland Cadets in Montreal in 1898. He served with the Brabants Horse in the Boer War, homesteaded near Paddle River Alberta. He enlisted in the 66th battalion in 1915 and transferred to the 49th (Loyal Edmonton Regiment) in 1916.

He appeared on the census in 1891 in Montreal Centre St Laurent ward Quebec. This is certainly the area of Montreal known as St Laurent Boulevard and not the town further to the west. The census entry is strange in that Samuel Hately is listed as 9 years of age but as a lodger in the household along with 7 adults and a 2 month old baby. Sam is the only one with the name Hately. The head of the household appears to be Frederick Eldrich age 28 and his wife Lucy age 24. The baby bears their last name.
