Not sure if this is the right man?
I found a C R Holmes who served in the 34th company 11th Battalion Imperial Yeomanry
6283 Cuthbert Ralph Holmes died of wounds 22nd July 1900 Kroonstad.
Resided at Bryn Coed Crescent Road Chingford Essex. Information taken from probate documents. Find a Grave record 25th July 1900. Medal roll records the 23rd July 1900.
Remarks in medal roll column does mention the Orange River Colony Police angle, so this could be the man? (194 against the remark, probably his service number ORCP)



You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Best regards,
Dave

Good shout, Dave. Can't imagine there being another "Cuthbert Ralph Holmes."

He was in the 34th Company's first contingent.

That's great, Elmarie, thank you. We now have photos of six of the nine men named on the plaque.
