Hi,

I need to find documentation pertaining to the execution of Izaak Liebenberg (or incorrectly JB Liebenberg), executed at Aliwal North 1902. Did the camps/prisons have log books? Who would have signed off on the execution? Where can I trace the documentation on the British Forces' side? What kind of documentation should I expect to see?

Regards,

Wynand

The problem here is that Military Offences were not tried in an open courtroom, from memory, there are a good number of papers in WO71 at Kew, but, whilst they do contain many of the actual court proceedings of each trial, these do stop well before he Anglo Boer War and relate to members of the British Army, later papers, in fact, almost all of the papers up to 1914 were destroyed.
