Boer War Veteran

Maclean nsw
Hi there. I am still trying to trace info about my grandfather, Herbert James TAYLOR and the possibility of him being a BW Vet. He was born in NSW Australia 28/8/1873. The history society in the district he lived in at the time gave me there only known BW Vet, Trooper James Taylor who enlisted in South Africa and served with the NATAL CARBINEERS. I read somewhere that a lot of the paperwork from the Anglo-Boer War was pulped to make paper. Does anyone have a comment for me. My grandfathers 1955 obituary stated that he was a BW Vet. None of the older family members know anything. Cheers. Kerry.
