We have updated our Boer War collection with almost 10,000 new records.
The major inclusions in this update are:
- The complete Queen’s South Africa medal roll for the Coldstream Guards, Irish Guards, 1st battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers and Rundles Scouts
- The Wepener clasp rolls for Royal Scots, Royal Engineers, Cape Mounted Rifles, Driscoll’s Scouts and the Kaffrarian Rifles
The Boer War records can tell you vast amounts of crucial information about your military ancestors, including the unit in which they served, where they became a casualty, which war memorial they appear on and the honours and awards they received.
This update brings the total number of records on findmypast.co.uk to 269,425. The records come from more than 470 sources, some of which are extremely rare and others are out of print.
Meurig Jones provided findmypast.co.uk with these records.
