The records on Findmypast has his initials the other way round:-

Name: Vincent, WJ
Rank: Private
Soldier number: 6751
Unit: 2 Battalion The Duke Of Cambridge's Own (Middlesex Regiment)
Literary references:
Medal roll:
Roll: Page

There don't seem to be any images to go with this record.

This web page gives a bit of information on what the regiment was doing at the time of the Anglo-Boer War:-
