Am a retired genealogist in Kent, England & my interest in S African history includes several military conflicts as well as 19th century missionary activity, particularly in KZN. ABW family connections include my grandfather, Pte John Walter Ewart (1873-1930) of the 20th & 10th Hussars, who was awarded the DCM when attached to the 6th Inniskillings following an action at Tevreden, nr Chrissiemeer, on 16 Oct 1900. Two younger brothers also served in the conflict - Fergus(on) Villiers Ewart & Charles Ewart, both Coldstream Gds (Belmont, Modder River etc, in Fergus' case).
Also interested in Boer occupation/control of Anglican missions at St Vincent (Isandlwana) & St Augustine's (nr Rorkes Drift) in first 6 months of 1900. Have visited RSA only once, visiting all AZW (1879) sites, as well as Blood River & Majuba.
