  • Hello, a spelling mistake. My grandfather was Amyatt Byng Giraud, not "Armyatt". He is buried in the cemetery in Smithers British Columbia Canada. He emigrated to Canada with his brother, Evelyn Herve Byng Giraud who was also in the Boer War

    Thank you
    Public - Barry James - Direct descendant - 24 November 2022
