Apparently, some editions of Creswicke's "South Africa and the Transvaal War" have an "extra"; in that some contain group/unit photographs of local South African units. Some time ago, djb suggested that IL post the relevant pics. Unfortunately, a couple only were posted - and then (I think) there was a series of IL computer crashes, etc., etc.
The pics are noteworthy in that the officers of the named units/sub-units are named. Should any member desire a "blow up" of any named person in any of the following posts, please let me know and - bearing in mind the limitations of the dot-matrix original print - I will do my best.
here are the CT TG's No.4 (Stuttaford's) Coy and No.2 (Cleghorn and Harris's) Coy. (I assume the titles refer to businesses?).
David - The CTTG must have been a large unit but BB&M doesn't list them among the Town Guard units and I've never seen or heard of a QSA to the them. I assume that, for whatever reason, they weren't awarded any. Maybe Cape Town was considered a 'safe' place well away from any Boer activity?
Certainly! My Creswicke bear the publisher's mark of "T.C. & E.C. Jack, Cape Town and Johannesburg: D.E.M'Connell and Coy". Printed by Ballantyne, Hanson & Co, at the Ballantyne Press, Edinburgh and London. Vol.I bears the date 1900, as do Vols. II, III and IV. Vol. V is undated; but contains a tipped in Publisher's note indicating the date March 1901. Vol. VI is dated 1901 and Vol.VII is undated.
My Creswicke Vols. I -VII have been bound in boards with leather spines. Most examples of Crewicke SA&TW found here are bound in pictorial cloth boards - and sadly often in poor shape. Some do have the pics in Vol.VII and some do not.
Hope this helps.
