It is always worth looking, papers do, on occasion remain extant depending upon the reason and date they were last subject to examination by the War Office and where they were subsequently filed.

It is certainly interesting to note his transfer from the old Pump and Tortoise, I wonder why, I dare say the uniform was enough, still a decision that proved fateful, he was subsequently buried in Pretoria, his grave, number 382 remains extant and is marked with it's original contemporary cross.
