BARNES, Samuel

No.2196, Private, Samuel BARNES

1st Battalion, Suffolk Regiment
Killed in Action on 6th January 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
Even that is not possible in this case

He has not been identified as a civilian but is located in Isleham on the commemoration report at the time of the unveiling of the Ipswich Boer war memorial

He was killed in action at Grassy Hill (now Suffolk Hill), Colesberg, His Queens South Africa medal carries the clasp for Cape Colony
