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

Charles MAYES is attributed to Hundon in the Ipswich Memorial records. I have been unable to find definite evidence of which Charles Mayes/Mays/Mayse this might be. There were several births in Risbridge that are possibles. but no proof

He died at Germiston according to some reports, Vereeniging according to others

His Queens South Africa medal carries the clasp for Cape Colony - Orange Free State - Johannesburg
