Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Trooper Enderby was at first refused permission to join the 1st New Zealand Contingent, but at Lord Ranfurly's instigation was later enlisted. He is recorded as having been 5ft 11 1/2 inches tall and taken size 12 boots.

    He died in Pretoria while serving as stationmaster. He was buried in Pretoria Cemetery and a marble stone was erected in his memory by his comrades from 1 Contingent.

    Before World War I, enteric fever, or typhoid fever, was the scourge of armies, and in the Anglo-Boer War killed more soldiers than enemy action. It is caused by a bacteria entering the body via contaminated food or water. Early symptoms include high fever, headaches and lassitude. Follicles along the intestinal walls later become inflamed, often leading to perforation and hemorrhaging. Other complications include gall bladder, pneumonia or heart failure.

    At the time of the Boer War, there were no antibiotic remedies for the disease.

    Father was named Charles Enderby. AWMM
