A church in Lewisham has recently been having movie evenings on Saturdays, so I bought a ticket to watch 'Toy Story' - there's also an ABW memorial plaque in the church. During the afternoon I took the bus from Lewisham to Eltham, and back, to visit Eltham churchyard for this memorial. All good fun!
A couple of hours spare after a long day on the range yesterday - so a bit of digging -

OUT OF ALPHA Sequence -
Sgt.Maj. W.H.Loney, NSW Medical Corps. The OZ-Boer database says 2nd Contingent, died of disease at Frankfort, 29/7/00. He was born 1876 in Eltham, Kent, UK. Chemist, QSA medal had clasps CC/OFS/Jhb. Was a compounder at Sterkstroom Hospital. He is listed on a memorial at Frankfort cemetery. The NSW paper, "Town and Country Journal" of 23/6/1900 shows Sgt. Loney as part of a reproduced group pic taken at Sterkstroom Hospital. I was able to lift a murky cut of Sgt. Loney and is attached. Wished I could have done better. Wished I could have done the same for all of them.
