From the City Coins 71 auction, November 2020.

ABO (Burger C.J.S. Viljoen);
With a length of Wound Riband (LvW)

Carel Viljoen served for the duration of the war in the Lydenburg Commando. He was in action in all the major Natal battles with subsequent service in the Transvaal. He was wounded on two occasions: at Platrand where he suffered a flesh wound in his left buttock and again on 13 May 1901 at Morgenson in the Lydenburg District when he was shot through the right shoulder.
