"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

South African (Second Boer) War: 1899-1902, Embarkation Roll: JOH to JOU
Topic: BW - Boer War

South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902

Australian Participation - Full Index

Embarkation Roll: JOH to JOU

 

 

The following is an alphabetical roll of all Australians known members of the many military formations which embarked overseas during the South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902.

Each man is detailed on this reference list with the following information:

Service Number;

Rank on Embarkation;

First Names;

Family Name;

If applicable, any false name employed; and,

Service unit.

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.

Australian Participation - Full Index

Embarkation Roll: JOY to JUS

 

 

The following is an alphabetical roll of all Australians known members of the many military formations which embarked overseas during the South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902.

Each man is detailed on this reference list with the following information:

Service Number;

Rank on Embarkation;

First Names;

Family Name;

If applicable, any false name employed; and,

Service unit.

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.

Map illustrating the activities of 2nd New South Wales Mounted Rifles in South Africa, 1901 - 1902.

[From: Chamberlain, M., The Australians in the South African War 1899-1902, Canberra, 1999.]

 

In 1911, Lieutenant-Colonel P. L. Murray, produced a marvellous Boer War reference detailing all the contingents sent from Australia to South Africa, giving a brief history of the formation and finally, listing all the soldiers who saw service in South Africa with that unit. The book was called, Official Records of the Australian Military Contingents to the War in South Africa. It is now the standard reference and starting place for any person interested in pursuing information about Australian involvement in the Boer War.

Embarkation of the SS Maplemore (left) and the SS Custodian (right) at Cowper Wharf.

[Sydney Mail, 23 March 1901. p. 726.]

 

The regiment left Sydney on 15th March, 1901. It consisted of 33 officers and 673 of other ranks, with 700 horses, and disembarked at Port Elizabeth, 17th April. Of these, 2 officers and 23 others were killed or died, 3 officers and 10 others were struck off the strength in South Africa, 28 officers and 640 others returned to Australia. Embarked at Cape Town on 4th May, 1902; called at Albany on 21st May, Melbourne, 29th May, and disembarked at Sydney, 4th June.

A draft for the regiment was despatched on 21st March, 1901, of 9 officers and 281 others, with 320 horses; 7 were killed or died; 2 officers, 27 others were struck off in South Africa, and 7 officers and 207 others returned.


Operations.

The 2nd Now South Wales Mounted Rifles were engaged in operations against Generals De La Rey, getup, Potgeitiers, and Vermaas:-

(a) Served in the Western Transvaal, under the command of Major-General Fetherstonhaugh, from 23rd April to the 1st October, the principal operations being the capture of Potgeitiers' convoy on the Vaal, 24th May, 1901; capture by the regiment of General De La Rays convoy of 106 waggons, a large quantity of cattle, ammunition, &c.

(b) Served in the Eastern Transvaal, under Major-General Fetherstonhaugh; engaged in many night marches, resulting in over 1,000 prisoners being captured.


The regiment served under Colonel E. T. C. Williams, of the “Buffs," throughout, with the exception of six weeks, when the column was commanded by Lieut -Colonel Lassetter.


Extracts from Column Orders, issued 17th April 1902, at Standerton

The command of this, a purely Australian Column, has been a great pleasure of the officer commanding, and he desires to thank every one for their cordial support and unfailing loyalty at all times.

During the year the Column has been in existence it has travelled upwards of 4,000 miles in every part of the Transvaal, doing much fighting and hard work, all of which has been most cheerfully carried out. One specially noteworthy feature is that, though constantly engaged with the enemy, only 18 men have been taken prisoners, and of them the larger number were taken on the first fight at Korranafontein and through no fault of the men. This record, which it is impossible to beat, speaks volumes for the spirit and soldierly qualities of the Australian Soldier. No Column has made more night marches; and one march, made on the night of 11 March 1902 from Brugspruit, over the difficult Wilge River to Doornek (230) a distance of 45 miles, which, with the return journey, makes a distance of 75 miles, is worthy of mention. Finally, to Lieutenant Colonel Lassetter, Commanding 2nd New South Wales Mounted Rifles, and to Major Lydiard, 2nd Mounted Rifles, the officer commanding Column desires to express his grateful thanks.

One hundred and forty-one officers, NCO's and men, never missed a trek during the regiment's service in the field.
