For the attention of those with relatives who served in the Boer War - help needed!

For the attention of those with relatives who served in the Boer War - help needed!

Hello,

I appreciate this is a (very!) long shot, but I'm looking for a possible case study.

Are any of you aware of a person who spent time in a workhouse and later fought in the Boer War?

If not, are any of you aware of any Boer War veterans who led a particularly interesting life? I would be very interested to investigate their life story if so.

Any information/names would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Ray

My great grand uncle served in a Queensland regiment and went on to become Speaker of the House of Representatives during the Second World War. He remained attached to the local Boer War Association and was President of it at the time of his death.

Is that the sort of thing you are looking for?
