Scots who fought in the second Boer War

Scots who fought in the second Boer War

My grandfather, Charles Roberton and his older brother Thomas are both missing from the 1901 census. They were the right age to have been away fighting in the second Boer War. They came from Bonhill in Dunbartonshire and I know there was a volunteer troop from that area. Does anyone know how I could trace whether they were part of that troop or fighting in the Boer War?

Many thanks,
Fiona
