"British troops" fire thier* rifles during the battle re-enactment of the Anglo-Boer war at the Talana museum in Dundee, 2002. Australia has sent Britain a petition calling for posthumous pardons for two soldiers court-martialled and executed more than 100 years ago in South Africa.

Wouldn't they be "Commonwealth" or "Australian" troops? :lol:

Hi Story,
Welcome to the forum. Re your post, if you look at the Breaker Mourant thread you will find enough information to realize why the Australian Government is appealing for a pardon
for Mourant and Handcock. Specifically there is a story on a post that I sent on that thread with a reference to a rather long SMH article on the subject.
Cheers David
