Abstract: In 1924 Field Marshal Lord Plumer was succeeded as Governor of Malta by General Sir Walter Norris Congreve, V .C. whose name will always be linked with the Scouts. General Congreve had lost an arm at Colenso in the Transvaal in 1899 whilst saving the guns from the Boers, a feat which gained him the highest military honour for gallantry, the Victoria Cross. (This honour was also posthumously awarded to his son Major William Congreve, who was also in his father's regiment, the Rifle Brigade, when he was killed in action on the Somme in July 1916 at the age of 25.)
