Yorkshire (North Riding) / Anne Eliza Sleightholm
« on: Monday 13 August 18 23:48 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone can help solve this query for me. William Alborough was born 15/12/1835 at Depwade Norfolk and died 13/4/1892 in South Africa.He married a Anne (or Ann) Eliza Sleightholm born 1846 at Sleights York. Trying to see if there is a relationship between Anne and a Robert Sleightholm who was born in Scarborough 1831. Looking on the internet it says Sleights is part of Scarborough. What is interesting is Ann went to South Africa, Robert went to Australia and then Roberts daughter Flora and son Robert went to South Africa. Flora Sleightholm was born in Tasmania in 1882. Thank You

World War One / South African brigade who fought at Delville Wood
« on: Saturday 28 May 16 12:57 BST (UK)  »
Would anyone be able to help please? A group of us veterans are attending the centenary anniversary of the battle of Delville Wood this year in July. We are looking for a group photo of the South African brigade who fought from the 14/7/1916 to 20/7/1916. Nearly 4000 troops entered the wood and only 140 troops and 3 officers walked out on the 20th. My grandfather was wounded in the morning of the 20th and sent to be treated at a hospital in Richmond. Thank you.
