Carole, These are some links that may help
The last link gave me the marriage details I was after. That is another step forward.
I have been scavenging amongst the valuable links from Colin Roe for the Boer War and have written to him directly.
The discovering anzacs link looks promising - a research task for another day.
Yes the Googling of his name, his regiment and his death brought up numerous results. The story is emerging.
Carole, There is a photo on Trove of this regiment page 21 (A squadron) - he is listed as OS PETT - not a good picture but you could check the Australian War memorial site to see if they have a better one
There is very little information recorded on Boer War Veterans
Thanks Elizabeth, yes I have captured that image with its caption showing OS Pett for my records.
Trove is an excellent resource for locating reports from the field in the Boer War and news of casualties, deaths and victories in the various skirmishes in the Boer War.
I wondered if the AWM would house photographs like this one and it would be an excellent find for the family of this soldier.
Carole, Have you seen the info & photos on this site which might help?
