Quote from: AussieBoy on March 22, 2008, 02:31:25 PMI saw the postal order, nice. My great uncle was named Edward Mafeking Christie as he was born on the day the Australians "liberated" Mafeking or whatever in the Boer War. He fought in both World Wars, putting his age up for the 1st and age down for the 2nd, was captured when Singapore fell and passed away in 1975.
Quote from: translateltd on March 22, 2008, 06:46:30 PMMy grandmother was Anne Tugela Foster, born 27 February 1900. I see the Battle of Tugela Heights ran from 21 to 27 February 1900, so either communications were pretty quick or they waited a while to name her :-) Since she was orphaned and brought up by relatives, I wonder if her father was killed in that battle - a topic for some future genealogical work for me ...MartinNZ
