Lieutenant Stanley Pershouse served in the Second Border Regiment of the British forces in South Africa in 1906. He became a member of the South African Ornithologists' Union in 1905, and was still listed as a member by 1909, giving as his address that of a Miss Findlay of Exeter, England. In 1906 he wrote a note, "Description of the nest and eggs of Mirafra rufipilea (Rufous-headed Lark)" (presumably now Mirafra africana, Rufous-naped Lark), that was published in the Union's Journal (Vol. 2(2), p. 115).
