From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Luitenant C J du Toit)

Lt du Toit’s medal was claimed by his widow in the early 1940’s and she listed his unit as General Beyers’ Commando. The medal is re-suspendered, and the naming is partially erased but sufficiently legible for positive identification.

The Boer Casualty records have 2 entries for Du Toit. In one (dated 22 April 1902) he is listed as a Lieutenant, State Artillery, killed in unknown action, and in the other (dated 7 October 1901) as Lieutenant in the Northern Border Police, stationed at Fort Hendrina.
