My great grandfather was Johannes Petrus Paulus and was farming in the Gordonia area, probably in Ganspan, Barkley-Wes.
What commandos were operating in that area?
Would it be possible to look up to see if he was part of a commando or Town Guard?
Was there a list of joiners, hensoppers, neutral people?

I would appreciate any help I can get

Try the Anglo-Boer War Museum in Bloemfontein.
Good luck with your search.

Voorie,

There was an ABO awarded to Johannes Petrus Nel. a Korporal in the Boksburg Commando.

If you contact Dewald Nel, he may be able to assist. Details via Contacts in the top menu.

Best wishes
