I have joined the site in the hope of finding any information about my great grandfather, Hendrik Lodewyk Momberg. I understand he joined the Boer forces based in Pretoria but I have no information about his regiment or his service. I have photos of him in his commando uniform. I am aware he was also one of the "bittereindes" at the end of the war. We unearthed a cached of weapons and equipment buried by him at the family home in Pretoria around 30 years after his passing in 1950.

Hi
Burger Hendrik Lodewyk Momberg, Pretoria Commando, was awarded an ABO medal.
If you contact Dewald Nel dewald@nelantiques.co.za he can supply you with his Medal Application Form for a nominal fee.
