From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Burger A.J. le Roux.);
With original embellished Wound Riband (LvW)

The medal was obtained from a grandson and was suspended from the Wound Riband as “incorrectly” worn by the recipient. Andries le Roux indicated on his Vorms “B” & “C” that he had served with Western Transvaal Commandos. Seeing that he listed Commandant Vermaas as one of the officers under whom he had served puts him in the Lichtenburg Commando, at least for the first phases.

He saw action at Mafeking, Magersfontein, Twee Rivieren/Paardeberg, the attack on Lichtenburg and the capture of Lord Methuen at Tweebosch and was wounded twice: in an unspecified action on 16 January 1901 at Wonderfontein in the Lichtenburg District (fracture left leg) and during the attack on Lichtenburg (bullet wound in hip).
