    Hi, a long shot I know but have only just discovered this post. I am the great grandson of Sgt.Mjr.A.Moss killed at Kimberley. I have some details about him and knew my grandfather who our family called Da and his wife we called Nonna, they lived in Wembley. I would love to hear from anyone who may be a relative or knows more info. I intend to visit Kimberly in the next couple of years and will visit G-Grandfather's grave

    Hello, my name is Susan Smith and I just came across your inquiry about Alfred Moss. Several years ago I corresponded with Alfred's grandson in South Africa and we exchanged documents and photos of Alfred. If you are still interested in knowing what I know and have about Alfred and his family I would be most interested in corresponding with you.

    Hello Susan,

    Welcome to British-Genealogy.

    Neither doowmat nor Greg Payne have visited the forum since they made their posts but if they are still using the same email addresses as when they registered they should receive notification of your post.
