This is an extremely useful site as it has a good detailed coverage of events, people, battles, medals etc which helps make a great deal of sense of this huge topic along with some great photographs.

New Ladysmith Website

Postby Brett Hendey » 08 Aug 2008 13:29

Brian Kaighin will be known to many people with an interest in the Siege of Ladysmith during the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902). Although still under construction, his latest project is a website (http://www.ladysmithhistory.com) that already contains a wealth of information on Ladysmith and the Siege. The announcement of this project and an interview with Brian appears in 'The Witness' (http://www.witness.co.za) dated 8/8/2008.

Glad you like this site, I have found it useful several times in the past during my research. The owner is a member on the British Medal Forum so I will ask him if he would like a links exchange.

Mark :)

Re: Websites on the Anglo-Boer War

Postby David Biggins » 26 Sep 2010 09:22

Last week the AngloBoerWar.com website was relaunched. It is still available at the same address: http://www.angloboerwar.com/

As the site has been completely re-written, all of the previous links to pages that existed before today will no longer work. If you click on an old link, you'll be taken to an error page and asked to navigate from there. It was not feasible or possible to provide remapped links from all of the old pages to the new ones.

So apologies if you find yourself within the 'page not found' trap but I'm hoping that the new site is easier to navigate than before so that you won't spend too long looking for the new home of the information you seek.

Kind regards
David

Hi,

I must say that this website that David has suggested is absolulty invaluable. I`ve recently discovered another Ancestor who fought in the Boer War. He was in the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) and on this website it gives all the details from start to finish of where he was , battles, the Brigade he was with etc. Absolutly fantastic. Also Findmypast has his pension records. So i`m very happy at the moment :D
