Great story Rory, looping in Diedericks to above, he only received ABO, his son applied for it Albert Hendrik and his fathers death at Maggersfontein was instrumental in the motivation of him receiving an ABO medal, due to being 14 at the time of the war and not eligible for an ABO medal.

I found Cmdt Chris Muller's grave on my recent ABW/finding-old-family-farm "pilgrimage" over the last week (he was my great-grandmother's older brother) and also the graves of my great-great grandparents. I'm assuming he must've been in either the Union Defence Force or Police perhaps? ... as he passed away with the rank of Mayor. I used an old 1900 British Military map and Google earth to roughly pinpoint the area the farm is (as my mother who visited there many times as a child cannot remember exactly where it was - apart from it being close to Kommissie Poort). By pure luck and coincidence I stumbled upon the current owner and he didn't know anything about the Muller's but indicated that there is an old family graveyard down the hill - and low and behold!
