[ DTD ]
ABO (A.V.Krt. A.J.H. Badenhorst);
With a length of Wound Riband (LvW)

Adriaan Badenhorst served as Krygskommissaris (Head of the Commissariat) of Ward 1, Wakkerstroom Commando from the beginning of the war to March/April 1901 when he claimed he was was promoted to Field Cornet. He was wounded at Dundee (Talana) on 20 October 1899 and again at Colenso (15 December 1899): according to the Wound Riband application Vorm ā€œCā€ they were both flesh-wounds to the legs.

He was taken prisoner at Rusthoek in the Eastern Transvaal on 12 March 1902 (PoW No 31367) and confined in the Umbilo Camp, Durban. He returned to his farm on 24 July 1902.

The Medal Advisory Board ruled that the rank on his DTD and ABO should be Assistent Veldkornet (Assistant Field Cornet).

The whereabouts of his DTD is not known.
