I am trying to trace descendents of Frederick Ambrose Stapleton Gwatkin or his son John Stapleton Gwatkin. I am trying to learn more about their military careers. FAS Gwatkin served in the Imperial Yeomanry (2nd Sharpshooters) during the Boer War and John Gwatkin served in the Army during WW2 but I'm not certain of which regiment/corps.

I'd be delighted to hear from anyone with information on either of these individuals.

Kevin,
I do not tie into your GWATKIN families, as far as I know from what little research I have done thus far.

However I do have a Frederick Pitt GWATKIN, born 1897 in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire to Alfred GWATKIN and Elizabeth Ann MEREDITH. One individual I corresponded with on other children in that family shared a site that may be of help for finding more on military service of your Frederick Ambrose Stapleton GWATKIN and his son. It is the National Archives and includes a number of different wars. It is as I recall
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/search
The index gives the basic details and has several different databases (for different time periods). For a fee you can download additional information I understand.

Hello Mary,
I do not have any information on your GWATKIN line. My ties are to Frederick Pitt GWATKIN, born 1897 in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire to Alfred GWATKIN and Elizabeth Ann MEREDITH.

See my reply to Kevin for a site that contains an index of military service and how to obtain more details.
