I am trying find my relative reputed to have inlisted in British army in about 1899 and was sent to South Africa for the Boer war. He was discharged there at end of war. He was born in Russia and immigrated to the UK with my grandfather and died in 1945 in Johannesburg. His family in SA have no records about him in the army other than his death certificate. Army records would contain place of birth, next of kin etc.useful info for going further. His name was Michael Cherry. Campaign Medal records list only a "M"
Cherry who turns out to be "Moses", a Scot!!!
