Register of the Anglo-Boer War back online

From Meurig Jones, news on the Register of the Anglo-Boer War website at

I am pleased to announce that The Register of the Anglo-Boer War 1899-1902 is back on-line following the recent hacking incident. The security has been upgraded to prevent a further recurrence.

You can change your registration details; email address, user name and password using Change Details on the blue bar at the top – this is only available after you have logged in. There is a password reminder facility on the login screen, this will send you a new password.

If you haven’t read the What’s New page recently I urge you to do so, there are a total 272,643 names on The Register highlights include; all Wepener clasp recipients, QSA rolls for the Natal Field Artillery, Natal Volunteer Hotchkiss Gun Detachment, 1st bn Royal Irish Fusiliers and Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia), KSA rolls added for the 12th Lancers, 11th Hussars, 10th Hussars and 9th Lancers. Additions to the Gazetteer have been made and the casualty roll updated and added to.

Future projects include recording the Relief of Mafeking clasp entitlements and new ways to view the data to provide a rich research tool.

(With thanks to Meurig)

  1. This is unrelated but I just stumbled upon a great website for those tracing craftsmen in Dundee, don't know if you know of it.

    It has detailed histories of the different trades, selected digitalized minutes, pensioners lists, copies of charters, etc.

  2. Hi Tunji,

    Yes, I reported on it about a year ago - . It's a great site!
