Boers at Mafeking Mahanlr

We are currently working on a future book publication, a combined roll and account of the defence and relief of Mafeking.

This involved approximately 1,300 defenders and 3,000 men in the relief.

We are currently gathering information to include in the book so please make contact if you have information on the men involved, extant medals, diaries or pictures.  Please email mafeking [at]

The book is due to be completed by December 2021.
