  1. Brian Membrey says

    WW1 Attestation shows 3 years with the Cape Mounted Rifles in South Africa and 7.5 years with the 13th Hussars in England, discharged on completion of time in 1915, at which stage he appears to have either migrated to Australia or joined up locally en route as a ship’s cook
