I suggest you approach Dewald Nel on [email protected] - he has scanned the entire compliment of Vorm B's and is able, for a reasonable fee, to e-mail the appropriate ones to you.

Just for background - the Vorm B I refer to is the application form a Boer combatant completed to claim his ABO medal from about 1920 onwards. The Korporaal in this example, claimed his medal which is why his name appears here.

It's a long shot but the applicant had to provide his address (when he claimed the medal) and you might be able to take your research from there.

Regards

Rory
