    Do you know whom I could contact to have a look at a photo of my Great Unlce whom we believe was Killed in Action on the British side at WINDBURG, Orange Free State, SOUTH AFRICA...

    I suspect that there is a Commonwealth War Graves Commission record that matches him (Though I am not certain); but I have a photo of him with an unknown brother - it seems with a British Crown Cap Bade that looks somewhat like the old Police Union Police Badge...
    The Uniform looks dark Blue and the Rifles they hold are certainly British.

    I suspect he could have died in November 1914 (As the CWGC record indicates); as that was a well known Rebellion at WINBURG.

    My e-mail is : william [ dot ] duplooy [ at ] btinternet [ dot ] com

    Can you perhaps direct me to someone whom knows more about these things?
