Vet Ltn George Henderson
« on: Wednesday 20 December 17 06:44 GMT (UK) »
Veterinary Lieutenant George Henderson - returned from the Boer War on the SS Orient1902
At the same time Mrs F Henderson -""Wife" arrived on the SS Wakanui from Capetown

She telegrammed the army asking where he was .

The Army advertised looking for the whereabouts of George ?

Any clues as to what happened to Mrs F Henderson ?

George later married Elizabeth Shore 1904

This man has the Mangakaramea connection

But no mention of a wife looking for him

Cheers Janette

Correction: images 11 and 12 are the telegrams but it just says Mrs Henderson c/o Wakanui

On enlisting he was working at Maungakaramea Dairy company - it says as a blacksmith - actually a cheesemaker - he went on to manage dairy factories around Timaru and the west coast .
