From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Burg. S.J. Steyn);
With a length of Wound Riband (LvW)

The medal is poorly re-suspendered.

Stephanus Johannes Steyn served in the Fordsburg (Johannesburg) Commando under Ben Viljoen from 11 October 1899 till the end of the war. He was in action at Elandslaagte and was 17 years old when he was wounded at Colenso on 26 Feb 1900 (wound to the head and a bruised right shoulder). He was admitted to the Johannesburg Hospital on 2 March and discharged on 6 March 1900.

According to Vorm ā€œCā€ he was again wounded at Rhenoster Kop, suffering 6 bullet wounds in his left arm. He laid down arms at Potloodspruit in the Lydenburg District after peace was signed.
