J'cans in the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902)?
My aunt, now deceased, told me that her uncle, Stedman Morgan, her father’s brother, born possibly in 1880 in Elim, St Elizabeth, had gone to the Boer War. She seemed quite certain of this. I, however, thought that she had made a mistake and meant the First World War (WWI). After all, what was a young country boy from St Elizabeth, about age 20, doing at the Boer War in the Transvaal in South Africa?
