Hello to Adrian, Frank, Meurig and David who responded to my letter about Pte.Walter Ward, Cape Police and his death at Kuruman. I know this was 5yrs ago now but I have recently looked again at these messages. Can anyone explain the change of name from Arthur Harris to Walter Ward which seems apparent from the entry for his attestation to the CMR as photographed by Frank at the Archive. This seems quite bizarre as my great uncle was definitely Walter Ward, born and baptised so in Derby! I don't see how it could be possible to enlist under a false name and why would he want to anyway?
I wonder what the order was that he neglected to obey!
Thank you for your past interest and information. Much appreciated.
