Genealogical website on Canadians in the South African War

While searching for something else entirely recently, I came across Hugh Armstrong's Genealogy Site (www.cangenealogy.com/armstrong/index.htm) which, among other things, contains an entire section on "Canadians in South Africa 1899-1902". Mr. Armstrong has transcribed material from the Sessional Papers of the Parliament of Canada and the Canadian Almanac, providing lists of officers who served and the dead and wounded of the six contingents Canada sent to the war, as well as auxiliary troops. Honours and Awards and Pay also have their own sections. An interesting reference site to be sure.
