From the City Coins 71 auction, November 2020.

ABO (Burger P. van Biljon)

Petrus van Biljon served in the Kroonstad Commando. He was in action, inter alia, at Zwartbooiskop (Rietfontein, 24 October), Modderspruit (Nicholson’s Nek, 30 October 1899) and Ladysmith before he was killed in action at Spion Kop. According to his gravestone this happened 3 days after his 35th birthday.

His medal was claimed by his son in May 1923.
