My Grandfather saw action in the Boer War with the Scandinavians from 1899 - 1902 and was issued with a service medal which included his stint at Maggersfontein.
It has/was in our family possession until the death of my brother and then mysteriously disappeared and I suspect was stolen.
Does anybody know how this medal found it's way into a collectors hands, I really would appreciate any assistance regarding this medal.
My Grandfathers name was : JOHANNES REINIERUS BESSELING

Thomasb,

There was something not quite right with the image you posted.  The forum saved it as text rather than a picture so I have removed it.

Would you be able to post it again please?  Perhaps try a different file format?

I can do that for you if you would like to email the file to me.

With apologies
David

Hi Tom
As mentioned in our numerous e-mails with each other, I bought this medal on auction in South Africa.
Kind regards
Charl
