'Since 1893 he had been in South Africa, chiefly engaged in gold mining. During the Boer War he served in Brabant's Horse and Kitchener's Fighting Scouts. He was one of the three officers selected by Colonel Grenfell for special service in the operations against Hertzog, Malan and Kritzinger in the Cape Colony, and later on against Beyer's in the Northern Transvaal. He left the Army at the end of that war with the rank of Captain and returned to mining work. He was employed for several years on the Knight's Deep property. At the outbreak of the present war he enlisted as a private in the South African Horse for service in East Africa, with the intention of coming to England at the end of that campaign and re-enlisting here. He, however, died of wounds received in action on October 25, 1916, in East Africa.' (Malvernian, Mar 1917).
