Hello jrkgreen
Welcome to the forum.
A quick question for you, was J K M Kerruish in South Africa during WW1?

Thank you for what you managed to find, Dave.

Here's another Manxman, whose name came up on Facebook - "Robert Varley from Ballasalla, also fought in the Boer war, on the British side."
Bit of a long shot, but can anyone identify him?

In that case, you may need to amend your public family tree , reference his service during the Boer War. Trooper J Kerruish 17th Lancers regimental number 4950 served in the same regiment during WW1...See attached medal roll for 1914

This certainly needs sorting; my great uncle definitely died in Grote Schuur Hospital Western Cape, so we have a clash of timings, it may be that he was invalided out and so made his way back to SA. his son Jack was too young to serve in WW1. and in any case would not have the same service number, I have a tangled knot to sort.

Maybe if I write to his granddaughter she may know better than me.
