ABO (Burgher P. J. J. Botha) sold by DNW March 2010. £230.

PJJ Botha served in the Pretoria Commando under General Louis Botha from October 1899 until August 1901, when he was captured and sent to St. Helena as a P.O.W. He had earlier seen action at Ladysmith, Laing’s Nek and Kameel-poort. On his return from St. Helena in 1902, he settled in Pretoria North and was issued with his Anglo-Boer War Medal on 2 August 1941 - accompanying letter from South African Defence Forces H.Q. refers.
