The ABO Application form lists Pieter Zacharias Fourie as having served in the Commando of "Gen. Liebenberg". Another source lists P J Liebenberg as one of the Commandants of the Potchefstroom Commando, which operated mostly in the western Transvaal, and Fourie was evidently with this Commando when he was captured. Fourie mentions on his form that he was with Commandant Erasmus and General Botha at Ladysmith. Erasmus was the Commandant of the Pretoria Commando and General Botha took over command of the Natal campaign at an early stage, so he was under these men in Natal during the early part of the war.
Listed operations he took part in are listed below:
He was captured on November 30, 1901 at Cyferfontein at age 26 and subsequently shipped off to St. Helena as a POW.
