484 Private Frederick Talbot WOODS 

This soldier is noted as not having boarded under CBC, however what ever the circumstances it appears that Murray simply missed him. His 1ACH attestation papers show his CBC service Was wounded with NSW Citizens Bushmen at Elands River 5/6 August 1900. Although 'B' Sqn it is not clear if this was part of the Relief or he was actually inside the defensive perimeter (press reports at the time). In WW1 he served with the South African Armed forces in Mechanical Transport during the South African Campaign.
