"Trooper P. Gunn, who left Oundle [Northamptonshire] to join the Bucks Imperial Yeomanry for service in the Transvaal, was invalided home from enteric fever, but just before reaching Gravesend, on Saturday, a relapse set in and he succumbed."
The Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury, Friday 15th June 1900

P. H. Gunn is named on the Buckinghamshire County memorial, as a member of the10th Battalion 2nd Bucks Squadron, Imperial Yeomanry.

The death of a Philip Henry Gunn was registered at Strood, Kent, in the second quarter (April-June) of 1900. If it's the same man, doesn't that mean he was buried on land somewhere?
