I am trying to find information on a William Harold-Barry who apparently died during the Anglo Boer War - any information would be greatly appreciated.
I have checked the name against those on this forum and the newspaper archive. Ancestry don't like my South African Credit Card.
Looking for Salutries, Salootries and Veterinary Duffadars.
I collect primarily QSAs to Indian Recipients.
William John Harold-Barry, born 8th September 1870. Fought in the Boer War with the Royal Munster Fusiliers. Died 2nd February 1896, at Krugersdorp, from wounds received in action.
Edit - "The Press Association is informed by the British South Africa Co. that they have been advised by cable from Capetown that Captain W H Barry, who was seriously wounded while with Dr Jameson's expedition in the Krugersdorp fight, died during the night of the 1st of February, and that his funeral was fixed for yesterday (the 3rd instant).
Captain Barry was an Irishman, and was the son of a gentleman well-known in the South of Ireland - namely, Mr J Harold Barry, of Ballyvonare." Freeman's Journal, Wednesday 5th February 1896
