Hello, Please note that this officer was not killed in action in the Boer war as shown. He was wounded but survived to fight in the France in World War and was wounded severely again.
Thankfully he survived to claim his pension up to his death on 2nd October 1956 leaving four sons all of whom were born after his return from South Africa.
I understand that he was mentioned in dipatches from SA and would ask if anyone has advice on how I could perhaps get a copy of that and the citation. I have a copy of his record from KEW WO 339/39870 235395.
Thank you. Eric
