A recent aquisition and my 1st Wepener.

He was taken prisoner at Browns Farm on 7th February 1900
Further papers show he attested for Scotts Railway Guards (Mounted) on 20 March 1901 in Capetown.
His address is stated as 87 Loop Street Capetown and his next of kin is his Father residing at Louisa Street King William Town.

Daniel was discharged on the 14th September 1901
His QSA was awarded with the following clasps:
Cape Colony,Wepener,Transvaal and Witterbergen.

Looks a treat and great story. I do wonder what happened to all those horse tradepersons when the internal combustion engine took over or overtook the horse.

Hello Paul,
You see, I said you would get one of these without any problems, glad you did! :woohoo:
He is shown on Kaplan's roll incorrectly as Baldock!

Stephen,
Thank your for your reply and comments.
Tes interestingly enough his Brother is listed as coachmaker, which I assume is within the same trade.
