Please does anyone have the book 'In Memoriam: Roll of Honour for those who died in the Boer War' by Steve Watts, and would be willing to look up one person for me?
Thanks

Hi Salome,
i went online to find out more information on this book and checked my local libary with the isbn # to see maybe it could be loaned
then to the national archives to see if it could be acessed somehow...no luck i'm afraid but that doesnt mean its out there somewhere to borrow as its very expensive to buy.
sometimes a fhs offer look-ups on such rare books, so dont give up  ;)
