From the next City Coins auction, November 2020.

DTD (V. Kornet & Adj H.J. Moolman);
ABO (V. Kornet & Adj H.J. Moolman);
with length of Wound Riband (LvW)

Hans Moolman was a Cape Rebel from Barkly East who joined the Boer Forces on 17 October 1899. He was in action at, inter alia, Stormberg, Aliwal North, Fouriesburg and Sanna’s Post. On his “Vorm “A” Aanbeveling” (Recommendation)” application for the DTD he claimed that at Sanna’s Post he “seized and carried off the horses of the officers”.

He was wounded on 20 May 1901 in a skirmish near Fouriesburg and awarded the LvW (Wound Riband).

He served for the duration of the War and was not captured.
