Yes I noticed in the nominal role for the Army that Fred Eric Roy Niehus and Frederick Niehus could be one and the same. actually it is something that I have come across a fair bit with my own Stepfather who is also on the list he is listed twice on his date of discharge from his first enlistment was when he was injured during the Darwin bombing by the Japs date of discharge was on the date that Darwin was attacked. then about 9 months later he re inlisted and served a couple of years after that. I wonder if the fact that my step father was injured at Darwin is why he was discharged and once he was well enough ( his injuries were leg and hip) he was reinlisted. ??? Bernie is dead now so I cant ask him. :(
I think possibly the same with Fred Eric Roy possibly he was injured and when re inlisted the differnce in the spelling of his name. I also notice that during that period of time ( Late 19th Early 20th centuries ) Germans in SA were given a hard time and anyone with a German sounding name often changed it to sound more English. so they they werent harrassed.
