From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Veldkornet J J du T Wessels)

Josias Wessels served in the Heilbron Commando under Commandant Stenekamp and General de Wet. He saw extensive war service in Natal (Ladysmith and Spionkop); Transvaal (Olifantsnek); Orange Free State (Bethlehem, Tabaksberg) and Cape Colony (Philipstown) before he was taken PoW on 1 March 1901, probably while resting after crossing the Orange River under De Wet.
