The SAFF Casualty roll shows Sgt. Payne 28081 was killed at Taiboschfontein on 10/1/02; as was Pte. Smith 23629. Pte. Turner 24339 was dangerously wounded at the same place and died of wounds 12.1.02. Perhaps Wintjeshoek and Taiboschfontein were close geographically? I have had a look in the Times History index as well as that of the Official History and cannot find a reference to the 65th Coy or 17th IY Bn. being in action around that date.
Perhaps Elmarie might be able to assist you in finding the burial sites?
Good luck
IL.
