"Early in November of 1915 Robert F McMichael, son of Mr. Daniel McMichael, Cape Colony, (a native of Ballycastle), paid a visit to his relatives in Ballycastle. During the Boer War he volunteered for service with the Imperial Light Horse. He was awarded two medals with six clasps. Some years after the Boer War he took part in the Zululand War. When trouble broke out in South Africa he again joined the Imperial Light Horse in Botha's army and was with this contingent when they captured Windhoek Forde. They had to go sixty-eight miles without water and horses dropped under them like flies, and men fell on all sides like flies with sunstroke. Robert was wounded at Windhoek. After his recovery he came over to England to fight in the Great War. Robert was a mining engineer and a nephew of Mr. James McMichael of the Royal Hotel in Ballycastle. Two of his brothers took part in the fighting in German West Africa".

Yes I agree with Dave it cant be the 1879 war , as the summary doesnt make sense . It must've been the 1906 Up - Rising .
