From the next City Coins auction, November 2020.

ABO (Burg. J.F.H. Bradshaw)

Joseph FitzHenry Bradshaw, aged 40, was Killed in action at Abrahamskraal on 10 March. His ABO medal was claimed in August 1921 by Ellen Maria Bradshaw (Widow? Sister? Daughter?). She stated that he had served in General Schoeman’s Commando and the Colesberg Commando.
According to a microfilm held in the Transvaal Archives listing Boer Casualties he was from the Langlaagte (Johannesburg) Commando. A list drawn up by the Boer War Museum in Bloemfontein notes him as a Cape Rebel from Colesberg. It is not known where he is buried.
