According to the 1901 census (for Bistre, Buckley) my G'Grandfather (William Hughes) was 'at the front line in South Africa'. As I cannot find a death record for him, it is possible that he was one of the unlucky ones.

The above article from 'justmilitary' mentiions that the departure of the soldiers from Mold was reported in the newspapers of that time. Does anyone know where I might be able to find copies of these? I am hoping to find a list of those who departed to South Africa and also a list of those who died in the Boer War.

Many thanks
