Hi Rudi

There are 7 J J Jacobs on the ABO roll:

Jacobus Johannes Gen Botha Artillerist

Jacobus Johannes Pretoria Burger

Johannes Jacobus Boshof Burger

Johannes Jacobus Bloemhof Burger

Johannes Jacobus Bloemhof Burger

Johannes Jacobus Lichtenburg Burger

Johannes Jakobus Zoutpansberg Artillerist

So if the rank is one of the artillerists, then there are 2 possibilities.
Otherwise there are 5 possibilities.

Regards
Adrian

Hi Rudi

You need to get his ABO application papers. They cost R100 if available.
Send me a Private Message (PM) and I will send you the contact details for the man who will have it. (its not me)
From this form, you will see his address etc, and can work on from there. Unfortunately, this is a common name combination, so its hard to find him without knowing the farm or family he was from exactly.
Regards

Adrian
