To the best of my knowledge the last claimant for the Anglo Boere Oorlog Medalje was in the 1980's.

I think they stopped issuing medals after that which, even though you can prove your relative was there, means that you won't be able to get a medal issued for him. I don't think there are any stocks of these medals left

Hello Lee Anne

I attach hereto a photo of what the medal issued to those who fought with the Boers looks like. Your relatives would have been able to claim this medal from the early 1920's onwards.

I suggest you get in touch with the SANDF documentation centre in Pretoria who may be able to assist you or e-mail Dewald Nel who could assist you 'dewald@nelantiques.co.za'

Regards and good luck

Rory

This medal is named the Anglo-Boer War Medal in its English translation, and Anglo-Boere Oorlog Medalje in Dutch/Afrilkaans. Just as the British medals for this war are abbreviated to QSA and KSA, this one is the ABO.
