ABO (Burger E.P.B. Dommisse). City Coins September 2017

Evert Petrus Benjamen Dommisse, 18 years old, served as Adjutant of Commandant Kranz, German Corps, from the start of hostilities till February 1900 and saw action at Wagon Hill and Spion Kop.

After the Relief of Ladysmith, the German Corps ceased to operate as a unit and Domissse joined the Germiston Commando which later merged with part of the Boksburg Commando under Commandant van Niekerk.

He took part in numerous actions in the Transvaal, including Donkerhoek (Diamond Hill), Dalmanutha, Nooitgedacht (Clements), Bakenlaagte (Benson), where he was wounded and Boesmanskop (1 April 1902). He laid down arms at Kraal Station near Heidelberg on 5 June 1902.

After the war he completed his schooling in Ermelo. He was older than his teacher, Miss du Plessis, and he eventually married her. His daughter Hermien, pioneer Afrikaans actress, was born in 1915.
