Boer War Helmet

Postby Michael T » 13 Jul 2016 14:28

Just received a Boer War helmet, cover and kit bag once belonging to C. J. Heane Orderly with the St Johns Ambulance Brigade. I'm not sure what the abbreviated references from left to right in his listing on the medal roll refer to apart from his regimental number 648 and C.C Cape Colony?

Lovely acquisition.
There are some good accounts of the SJAB in this book.
If you PM me I can email you a couple of pages which summarise their role in the ABW.

Cape Colony ....... Yes

Forgot to add this.......

If you know what Division he was from there is this book about the SA War:

BLACKPOOL DIVISION: ST. JOHN’S AMBULANCE BRIGADE; THE EARLY YEARS, by Peter Beighton, Creda Communications, 1998

Hi Rob, That would be good, until I can gain a copy of the book. I live in Sydney, Australia. My email address is m.tyne@bigpond.com

I'm not sure at this stage what division C. J. Heane was attached to but will try and get a copy of this book.
