From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Lgr. Komdt A.J.P. Rautenbach)

On his Vorm “B” Laager Kommandant Alwyn Rautenbach stated that he had served in the Waterberg Commando under Genl Beyers but he is noted as being in the Heidelberg Cdo on the PoW Register (No 24139). He was 57 years old at the time of capture and he, as well as his 15 year old son, was sent to India. The rank on the medal is potentially misleading: it is not military, but is the Boer term used for the Commissariat Officer of a commando.
