For a long time on the site I have had a provisional list of Wepener recipients. I have removed these this morning and replaced them with a more up to date list and included details of surviving medals in the notes.

For example:

Anthony,

There were two men with surname the Patmore in the Kaffrarian Rifles; George Robert (1853 - 1916) and your man, probably George's son Frank Cecil.

Frank Cecil was born in 1886 in Cathcart, Cape Colony, which, if true, would make him 14 at the time of Wepener. Afterwards he worked as a miner and died 20 October 1918 'On active service' in England, aged 32.

Frank married Vera Maude Winn in Turffontein, Johannesburg, 15 September 1915. They had 2 girls.

Frank served 3 February 1900 to 25 April 1901. Corporal 20 February 1901.

Clasps verified on 254p53 and 254p112.
