Hi All

No one has published any ABO combinations yet so I thought I would post this one.

Burger WJ Van Der Merwe (there are a few on the roll) also served in ww2 as 701836 in the ESPC. Nice picture of him in ww2 uniform and you can see on his medal ribbons the ribbon for the ABO.

Kind regards

Munroe

Hi All

His name was Willem Jacobus van der Merwe from other documents I have. There are 3 of these with the same name on the roll. one has a LVW ribbon so he can be eliminated, leaving 2 more.

Henk - any idea which one it could be.

Kind regards

Hi

Then not to be outdone by this we have no 701462 Pte GW Grant of the ESPC, who also served in the Boer War but with Remmingtons Guides and Damants Horse and earned a 9 Bar Queens medal as a Trooper in the Boer war

One wonders if these 2 boer war veterans ever bumped into each other?

Munroe,

Like that 9 clasp QSA. Is it named to Damant's Horse?

PS I rotated the image to make it easier to appreciate.

Munroe,

No problem with the pictures. To correct them, I save them on my PC, rotate them and then resave the images. I think your image software is rotating them for viewing but the underlying image is as posted on the site.

I would suggest viewing the image in a different package such as PhotoShop Elements.
