ABO (Burg. F.J. Erasmus). City Coins, December 2013

Frederick Jacobus Erasmus of the Lichtenburg Commando was present at the Sieges of Mafeking and Kimberley and taken prisoner in 1901.

Entries 30655 and 30656 in the Prisoner-of-War list two men of these names, though only one person with this name is recorded in the Die Medaljerol by D.R. Forsyth (1976).

They were age 58 and 30 years old respectively (thought probably to have been father and son), both captured in July 1901 at Rustenburg and interned in India in March 1902.
