Fredrick William Dunkley's service numbers Second WW Service Number - W26182  and First WW 7154 He was also a member of the 16th Queens Lancers U.K. for 8 years, he was a boy soldier. Military records show Fred signed his name as Fredrick not Frederick.

Frederick went to the Boer War as a boy soldier at 14 years of age. Like most cavalry regiments, the 16th Lancers deployed to the Boer War serving there from 1900 until their eventual return to England in 1904. During the campaign they took part in the Battles of Paardeberg and Diamond Hill, as well as playing a leading role in the Relief of Kimberley. One of the most satisfactory cavalry actions occurred at Klipt Drift on 15th February 1900, when two squadrons of the 16th and one of the 9th Lancers charged to clear the 'knek' between two hills, which were occupied by the Boers. The enemy attempted to mount as the Lancers approached, but were swept away and fled in all directions. The Boers left some twenty dead; the Lancers continued their advance for some five miles on towards Kimberley

Louisa, spent most of her second married life at Kitchener Road Bayswater, all her Dunkley children being born there. She was a dedicated mother, she was ill with cancer for many years and spent a lot of time "Going out" with her sister Rose. She struggled though the depression bringing up 10 children in a 3 bedroom house but still maintaining her dignity, not only bringing up her own children but some of her grandchildren as well. Louisa was a woman of her time, never went out to work and very family orientated. Sunday dinner consisted of catching a chook, killing, plucking and cooking it. She was an avid card player, mainly patients for a penny a point against her daughters in later life.
