I am trying to find out the fate of Trooper Stuart Brown of Kitchener's Horse. The nominal roll images on ABW website show he enlisted on 6.8.1900 and was discharged as “Medically Unfit” (Supery?) on 21.11.1900. I have an envelope addressed to him at Ward 26 13th General Hospital Wynberg from a A.T.T. Middlemiss posted from Mochundi (British Bechuanaland) dated NO 22 (no year date). On consulting the SAFF Casualty list I found a reference to Trooper S Brown Kitcheners Horse, being killed at Bothaville on 6th November 1900. I am assuming this is the same S. Brown but it would seem he wasn't killed at Bothaville. I am wondering if he died from his wounds in hospital or if the Casualty list entry needs amending?
Any information would be greatly received.
Trooper Stuart Brown 23552 was discharged on 21st November 1900.
Trooper Sidney Bennett Brown 25330 was killed at Bothaville. Medal roll states 6th of November 1900. His personal effects date records 11th November 1900
Both served in Kitcheners Horse.
