Arthur John & Louis James STENT - Feilding, New Zealand

Journal by ngairedith

I have found 2 STENT boys who were sons of a James Stent.

I have a JAMES STENT on the Peck tree but he is obviosuly not their father as Arthur and Louis enlisted in 1902 for the Boer War - too old to be his children.
So who were they - I am sure they were related and belong somewhere on the tree.

ARTHUR JOHN STENT

LOUIS JAMES STENT

CONTINGENT: eighth
UNIT: North Island Regiment - B Squadron

- there was a Louis James Stent who served in the Anglo-Boer War Serial Number 5248 and also a Louis James Stent who served in WWI in 1916, Serial Number 12/3835 as a Lance Corporal. Was it the same James? He had a wife in Opotiki by then only listed as Mrs E.I. Stent.

Can you please help with who these boys were.
They were of the same area in Manawtau, New Zealand as the other Stents.
They enlisted on the same day into the same contingent, their ID numbers follow each other etc etc
