About Aylmer Templer Wales

"Delville Wood, Uys, 1983" pg 144, para 3: "Second-lieutenant AT Wales, 23 (not 22 as some reports say, including Uys's book, Roll Call) was the son of Col Wales VD, of Pretoria. After schooling at Pietermartizburg he worked at the Premier Mine. Wales joined the Natal Light Horse then transferred to the NMR (Natal Mounted Rifles) for service in SWA (German South West Africa, now Namibia). He joined 2SAI as a lance-corporal and served in Egypt. He had just been commissioned when he was mortally wounded at Delville Wood and died on 17 July 1916."
