This is my great grandfather. You have quite the right information. I have a couple of pictures of him I could give you to add. His son, (my grandfather) was also Reginald David Davies, and was born in Johannesburg during the Boar War. My Father Alan David Davies is 81 now and lives in Coquitlam, BC. I am in Vancouver.
