Hi

I am trying to find more information on Peter Hans Christian Nielson. He was my great grandfather who was a POW in St Helena.
He stayed in St Helena after the war and married Sophia Corker. He passed away in 1936
I have looked at the POw’s and in the records there are 2 people with the same name. I was always told he was Danish and in the Scandinavian Corps. The other with the identical name was an American volunteer.
I am interested to know if anyone has any information that would help me
Much appreciated
Andrew

Andrew,

He applied for his medal and recorded he was from the Scandinavian Corps. Here is his incorrectly spelled and waiting to be expanded record: angloboerwar.com/forum/surname-n/18565-n...hristen-burger#34569

If you contact Rhino Research of Dewald Nel (links in Contacts in the top menu), they will be able to give you a copy of the application, Form B, for a nominal fee.

Good luck!

Hi David,

Thank you for the prompt reply. I have contacted Rhino.

Is the Burger the incorrect part ? or is it something else

Thanks

Andrew

Andrew,

I presumed my version of his name was incorrect. I have 'Nielsen, Pieter Hans Christen'. You have 'Nielson, .. Christian'
