Hi Mike

I am unaware of a book , especially in English, but there are some articles which can be downloaded:

1. scientiamilitaria.journals.ac.za/pub/article/view/855

Scientia Militaria, South African Journal of Military Studies, Vol 6, Nr 2, 1976. scientiamilitaria.journals.ac.za

This is in Afrikaans, but has an English introduction and some lovely photos.

2. D J Haupt, 'Die Staatsartillerie van die Suid-Afrikaanse Republiek' (Unpublished MA Thesis, University of Pretoria, 1946) . In Afrikaans, have not seen it, but must be very interesting.

3. UNIFORMS OF THE STAATSARTILLERIE: INFLUENCES AND DEVELOPMENTS
D G Friend, SA National Museum of Military History

The South African Military History Society Die Suid-Afrikaanse Krygshistoriese Vereniging
Military History Journal Vol 9 No 4 - December 1993
samilitaryhistory.org/vol094df.html
(Can be downloaded, in English, good photos)

4. saartillery.wordpress.com/eleven-days-in-the-anglo-boer-war/

The war experiences of Mike du Toit:Eleven days in the Anglo-Boer War
by Pierre du Toit

In English, some photos etc.

Hi Mike
I have a typed and badly roneoed copy of Vols 1 & 2 of the State Artillery Musters. It gives names and service dates, but is a pain in the nether regions to search for names : not alphabetical

Thank You Adrian and Henk......

What I am trying to find out is information on Sergeant Major Christiaan George Snyman, Transvaal Staatsartillerie....
Thinking that with that rank he may have been mentioned in the Regimental History, Books or articles on the unit......

Here is his Vorm "B" and a photo of the medal.......
