Notes & Photos
Victor was named Colenso after the victory there by the British Army during the Boer War
in South Africa. His mother's brother Bob Penny served there and Plenty named her son
after the place where Bob had seen action. Victor's gravestone can be found in North
Weston Cemetery, Portishead. He shares the plot with his father Albert and his mother
Plenty who were interred in the same grave.
