Casualties for the Siege & Relief of Ladysmith.
‘Casualties’ is not the correct word for what this section intends to portray however ‘Boer War Dead’ also is not suitable terminology for this section. What we’re trying to achieve is a database that contains all known British dead that died in the Second Anglo Boer war. There is a FREE casualty search of my database and other books and references at my disposal. An enquirer will need to send me, via email, all known information they have in their possession.
In addition I am prepared to visit the National Archive repository in Pietermaritzburg for which there would be no charge for my time but I would expect my travelling costs to be paid.
