Frank,

Quite right, i also noticed a nice Wepener group which will also be right up David's street.

Adrian,
Wepener is something I could never seem to get into, always prefered the bloody battles in Natal, perhaps when Davids new book is out, my interest may move in that direction.
Having said that, I do have some examples, Brabants Horse and CMR etc, but not much really.

Hello Adrian,
Not sure to be honest, though, I do know I have something for them,I have not bought any Wepener's for many years now, it would be early to mid 1990's when I bought the last one, and they were cheap in those days! :)
My normal process is after aquiring the medal/medals, (in the case of Wepener, after verification on the published roll!) original roll entries and search for papers etc, here, in the case of CMR/CP, email to Audrey Portman!
The latter not necessary for Brabants Horse of course! :)
Great fun going to Kew and examining the atestation papers myself and can combine with a buying trip to Spink! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
Regards Frank

Frank,

Why I ask is because I am sure there are no attestation papers for the CMR in the UK but I do have access to the CMR Enlistment and Defaulter registers in Cape Town.Interesting documents in the D/D reference.

Adrian,
Yes you are quite right, there is nothing CMR here as you have it all over there! :sick: :sick: :sick:
I'm going through my Imperial Light Infantry, Steinacker's Horse and Imperial Light Horse phase at the moment, so able to look at lots of stuff here!
Best regards Frank.
