Thank you David. There may still be some surviving records for my man then as it looks like he started out with the Herefordshire Militia (Rifle Volunteers).

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,
 
Does anyone have info on Henry Cockburn, Saddler Sergeant Major, 4th Dragoon Guards at Shorncliff, Kent in 1894, his son Henry Robert was Baptised there.
I'm presuming he served in the Boer War. Would there be any mention of him in the book mentioned above 'In Memoriam' by Steve Watt. If anyone can help I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks,

Craig

Hi Craig - He's not on the Queen's South Africa Medal roll so didn't take part in the Boer War.

Just to tie up the original thread regarding a Boer War Memorial to George Tinson at Childswickham, it turned out to be a typing error on the website.  :-[

Hi:  I've got a couple of guys who fought in the Boer War, and I wonder if there is anything on them, particularly the first one:

Harry Archbell - Private 24968 Cape Colony Cyclist Corps - 10 January 1901 - 16 April 1902.  Time expired.

Frederick John Harry Archbell - Trooper 38321 Rimington Guides (Damants Horse).  Died 26 March 1902 at Harrismith of enteric.

Frederick, I know, came from London, but Harry is a bit of a mystery.

I obtained my initial information of these two from http://hometown.aol.co.uk/tamsinasplin/

Frederick is buried in Harrismith town cemetery and his grave is marked with a named metal cross. His religion is shown as CofE.

Thanks for that.  I may be coming over to SA some time next year, will be staying in Howick, and it's not too far to Harrismith - I wish I'd known about this last year  ???

I take it there's nothing about Harry?  He's going to be awkward, isn't he?  Just like an Archbell  ::)
