Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
    • 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. AWMM

  • Charles Edward Smith, you were my grandmother's brother. A great loss to the Smith family. There were only two sons in the family of daughters. Both sons died young. I am sure you have been remembered all these years by descendants of that Smith family.
    Public - Marion Joy - Other relative - 3 March 2016
