Thank you very much for all the info, so much appreciated, and just what I was after. It really does paint me a good picture of that part of George's life which has been quite a family mystery up until now.
All we knew was that he was always known as Captain Payne up until the day he died, but we couldn't work out why. Then came the next piece in the puzzle - the photo! And now all this information has topped it off nicely for me.
I went on the angloboer website - very informative & interesting also.
So I guess that's about all, thanks once again - a gold star to the Message Board and its helpful participants!
As an aside, George apparently brought back an exotic parrot and a meerkat when he returned from Africa - try doing that today!!
