MALYON, Thomas

No.4253, Private, Thomas MALYON
Aged ?

1st Battalion, Suffolk Regiment

Died of Illness on 1st April 1900

It is not always possible to match the soldier with the civilian with these Boer War casualties.
That means I can only record "most likely to be" in many cases for the civilian identity
In this case even that proved impossible

Apart from his name on the Memorial and an entry on nothing has been found, not on Bury Free Press nor any of the usual website to identify this man either as a civilian, or his service/medal details

casus belli indicates he died on 1st April 1900 at Naaupoort from enteric fever
