Anglo-Boer War Records
Our latest project is to electronically capture and preserve the original application forms for the Anglo-Boer War Medal (De Zuidafrikaanse Republiek en Oranje Vrystaat Oorlogsmedalje), Decoration for Devoted Service (Dekoratie Voor Trouwe Dienst) as well as the Wound Riband (Lint Voor Verwonding). These records are accessible through our website by clicking on the “Catalogue” tab.
The list of applicants can be searched according to rank, initials as well as surname. By clicking on the surname of the applicant, the applicant’s medal entitlement as well as his or her unit can also be established (FREE OF CHARGE).
To date, we have scanned and recorded about half of the applications. In most instances these files represent the only written record of the service of these soldiers who fought on the side of the two Boer Republics.
For ease of reference, and to make the site as accessible as possible, English has been used.
Scanned copies of the application files can be obtained by placing an order for the relevant file and safe and convenient payment can be made offsite via PayPal.
Should you have any feedback or questions, you are welcome to contact us.
