Searching Ancestry. to leave a history for my grandchildren.
My Grandfather, Ernest Albert Robbins born in Therula Australia 1882
enlisted in New Zealand (I think) and fought in the Boer War. He emigrated to Canada
After the war. In 1905.
He married my grandmother 1911. Passed away 1958.
I have a photo of him in uniform and some memorabilia. I would like help to find his service information. I know that he was in a Calvary unit.
Any help would be appreciated.
I am 83 and live in St Catharines, Ontario Canada
