Cannot find any Arthur Andrew either buried at De Aar or in the book "In

It would appear that he was technically a civilian and consequently could
have been buried in the adjacent civilian cemetery at De Aar ???

Unfortunately the De Aar Civilian Cemetery records were destroyed in a fire
in 1952, so there is now no way of confirming that he was buried there, but
he is unlikely to have been buried anywhere else.     De Aar was (still is)
an important railway junction.
