From the next City Coins auction, November 2020.

ABO (Kpl. A.A. van Jaarsveld)

Corporal Adriaan van Jaarsveld served under Field Cornet I A Meyer (who also completed and signed the Vorm “B”) in the Ladybrand Commando.

He was in action at Jammersbergdrif (Wepener), Sannaspos and Biddulphsberg before he was taken prisoner at the surrender of General Prinsloo with more than 4000 men at Slaapkrans (Surrender Hill).

Aged 23, he was sent to Ceylon as PoW Number 8936.
