Tracing your Boer War Ancestors: Soldiers of a forgotten war

24-01-2017 14:00

January 24th 2017 marks the 117th anniversary of the Battle of Spion Kop.  Jane Marchese Robinson will be delivering a talk based on her book ‘Tracing your Boer War Ancestors: Soldiers of a forgotten war’.


The book brings to light stories of some of the ordinary soldiers involved in this conflict which took place some 6000 miles away from home, fighting in conditions which were compounded by intense heat and lack of clean water. It describes how they fared in South Africa and how they and their families coped in the aftermath.

In her talk Jane will provide an overview of the war and will recount the stories of men from the Fusiliers who died or who were terribly injured that day. She will go on to describe the impact both on them and their families, whose lives would be changed irrevocably.


Date: Tuesday 24th January 2017
