My brother Stan is the current family genealogist and a couple of years back managed to track this distant branch of our family. George Ross had changed his name to Arthur Ross which was enough to hide behind pre-internet days. His grandson, Brian Ross, 83, now lives in Western Australia and has filled in much we did not know about George Walter Arthur Ross and all our missing relatives.
Brian's interest is the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902 about which he has researched and written a number of books. His interest in the Anglo-Boer War has a personal link. His Grandfather fought in the war as a Commandant of a Boer Commando unit, defending his adopted country Orange Free State against the British. You can read more details on The Australian Boer War memorial website here.
