Private George Arthur Roberts. Roberts was probably already in the 17th North Middlesex Rifle Volunteers before the outbreak of the Second Boer War. Roberts was left behind in the hospital camp at Nauuwport, where on 16th April he wrote a letter to let his parents know he was “going on very well”. This never reached them pneumonia set in after the attack of enteric fever and two days later he died 18th April 1900. George Arthur’s younger brother Albert Charles joined the Royal Navy in 1913, was married at St Michael’s in 1915 and killed when his submarine was sunk by a mine off Orfordness, Suffolk, with no survivors in 1916.
