This blog is connected to my website The Register of the Anglo Boer War 1899-1902 (aka

I have been researching the Second Anglo-Boer War 1899-1902 since 1984, when I was a student studying African History at the University of Sussex. Although, my first brush with warfare in southern Africa was, like so many others, with Washing of the Spears and those films about the 1879 Anglo-Zulu War!

I will use this blog to elaborate on anything I find of interest in my researches into the men, women, medals, memorials, ephemera and anything else I think is relevant.

The Register of the Anglo Boer War 1899-1902 is a register of those who fought for the British Empire. It will become a complete (as complete as lists of people ever get) list of everyone who fought against the Boers. There is information in The Register for family historians, medal collectors and researchers.

You can read more about The Register on the website itself - especially the best casualty list ever produced.

I hope you will enjoy and find this blog interesting.
