John Anstee Second Boer War Hero

We have uploaded to the Pre-World War One Roll of Honour a biography of John Anstee of the Thornborough Anstees, who enlisted in the Army in January 1902 in order to fight in the Second Boer War, and was posted to the 34th Battalion of the Imperial Yeomanry as a Trooper, leaving for South Africa in May 1902.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography please contact us at

Anybody who has researched their Anstey ancestors’ wartime heroics and wishes for their findings to be uploaded to the Anstey story project website, feel free to contact us.
