ABO (Sersj. C.J.P. Van Den Berg). City Coins August 2016

Coenraad Johannes Petrus van den Berg of Van Dam Johannesburg Commando was POW 1900 and sent to Portugal returning after peace was declared. When his unit crossed the border into Mozambique they were all taken prisoner by the Mozambique Authorities. He was imprisoned in Portugal, returning after peace was declared. His ABO was authorised as he had been ordered to enter Mozambique and had not done so on his own accord.

Took part in the following actions: Ladysmith; Tugela; Colesberg; Abramskraal OFS; Bronkhorstspruit; Dalmanutha; Zandspruit. He was a Sergeant in the S.A. Police.
