Boer War - Spion Kop Photographs
« on: Thursday 21 January 16 19:54 GMT (UK) »
I was lucky enough to holiday in South Africa recently and had the opportunity to visit Spion Kop.  I took a number of photos and will post them gradually on this thread.

If you see anything of interest PM me and I can send a high resolution copy of the photograph.

Thanks,

Jean

I was there too some years ago. I believe that one Boer was skilled in the battle and is buried there also.

Hi Barry,

More than 1 I think, I should have photographs of the Boer memorials as well as the British ones.  Here are a few more.

I had a friend whose grandfather was at Spion Kop. He was wounded but survived. I saw his personnel record but can't remember any details. With a name like Smith, not much help.
