From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Burger K. Schweikardt)

Karel Schweikhardt was a German citizen who joined the Pretoria Commando on 15 January 1900 and initially saw service at Ladysmith. He then transferred to the Krugersdorp Commando and, after the action at Dalmanutha, he was in the group that crossed the border into Mozambique under General Pienaar on 23 September 1900. As Foreign Volunteer he was repatriated on the SS “Styria”. In Trieste he was paid £8/10/- as “pocket money” and received a travel-ticket with destination Hamburg. It is not clear why he stated on his Vorm “B” that he was sent to Holland. After the war he settled in German South West Africa: his address when he applied for his ABO medal in 1921 was “Schweikardtsbronn, Outjo District, SWA”
