Barred Johannes Vorster Naude was captured by Tpr. K.A. Warmington and the 6th South Australian Imperial Bushmen on 2 August 1901. They were two boys - Naude 16 and Warmington barely 18.
The South Australian helped himself to Naude's watch but returned it after the Great War 1914-1918 on reading that a BJV Naude had been mentioned in despatches. I've told this story in the attached short article which will appear in Boer War Dispatches No. 4 December 2015, the newsletter of the South Australian Boer War Association.
I met Warmington's granddaughter last week and we would like to get in touch with present day descendants of BJV Naude. They may not be aware of the story behind the watch if it remains in the family's possession, and we would very much like to see a photograph of it.
