For the sake of completeness, Boaz Pelling enlisted in the 14th Kings Hussars on 10/12/1891 and served until 1912 when discharged to pension.

His army service record shows he married an Ellen Donnelly 25/11/1897 Cahir, Co. Tipperary and they had at least 5 children:

Charles born 23/1/1899 Newbridge
Edith May born 4/1/1901 Curragh
Ellen Margaret born 24/9/1902 Curragh
William Frances born 4/10/1904 Sharncliffe (or Shorncliffe)
Michael Edward born 16/5/1907 Bangalore, India.

Boaz was discharged to pension in 1912

The family appear to go back to Sussex after returning from India and looks like wife Ellen died there in Mar.qtr.1921 Hailsham - Boaz remarried to an Agnes B Bainbridge in June quarter 1926 Hailsham and he died there June qtr. 1936.

Interestingly, there are a number of trees on Ancestry featuring him but they only show his second marriage to Agnes - his first wife and children not shown at all which seems a bit odd.
