Does anyone know where I can find the military service records of those who fought and died in the service of the 4th South African Infantry in World War I?

I know that Private Arthur Groves from Cape Town served in the 4th South African Infantry and lost his life in Picardie, France on 9 Oct 1918; his Regimental Service number was 15550.

Private Groves' next of kin was Mr W. Atkinson, of Sussex Street, Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa.

I know that Private Groves was awarded at least one World War I medal, and his next of kin were awarded the "Dead Man's Penny" commemorative plaque on his behalf.

However I can find no Medal Records or any other service records of Private Groves on Ancestry, or on The National Archives site in Kew, West London, England.

I would appreciate any pointers on this.

Best regards, Paul R Hynd
