  1. COMMEMORATIVE MEDALLION SCANDINAVIAN CORPS AT MAGERSFONTEIN 1899 SHAPE: CIRCULAR OBVERSE: QUARTERED ARMS OF THE SCANDINAVIAN NATIONS WITH SURROUND INSCRIPTION "AT MINNET AV DEN SKANDINAVISKA KAREND STRID VID MAGERSFONTEIN 1899". REVERSE: VIKING LONGBOAT AT SEA, AND LOWER INSCRIPTION, "DE KEUNDE ICKE VIKA BLOTT FALLA KUNDE DE." METAL: BRONZE MAKER: C. C. SPORRONG & CO. SIZE: 90 mm REMARKS / HISTORY: 1. REVERSE, ROUGH TRANSLATION: "THEY COULD NOT SURRENDER ONLY FALL (DIE)." 2. OBVERSE ROUGH TRANSLATION: FOR THE MEMORY OF THE SCANDINAVIAN CORPS BATTLE AT MAGERSFONTEIN, 1899. The following was sent to me by a member of another forum and is used for information / reasearch purposes only..... The Scandinavian Corps in South Africa (An edited translation of a chapter in "Svenska Frivilliga" by Lars Ericson) The Scandinavian Corps was founded just before the outbreak of hostilities at a meeting in Pretoria. Recruiting was mainly among Scandinavian miners around Johannesburg, but the corps also contained a number of sailors. The corps was mounted, and in 1899 they consisted of 9 officers and NCOs and 104 ORs. (45 swedes, 24 danes, 18 finns, 13 norwegians and 13 others) The CO was Captain Axel Christer Helmfrid Uggla (a railway engineer) from Sweden. On 16th October 1899 about 50 men of the corps paraded for President Krüger before leaving for the front. His second in command was fellow Swede (from Sundsvall) Erik Ståhlberg, the only officer who was a trained officer. Lieutenant Ståhlberg got about a week to try to give some basic military training to the force, where previous military- weapons- or equestrian training was scarce. The corps tasks were mainly sabotage operations, but they also took part in the Siege of Mafeking and the battles at Magersfontein an Paardeberg. The were present at the siege of Mafeking, were they served as mounted infantry and clearing mines laid by the defenders. They also demolished railway lines and took horses from the british. The second in command, Erik Ståhlberg wrote in 1901 after coming home about the siege: "The bombardment continues day after day. But it is not impossible getting new friends on the opposite side. Sundays and holidays hostilities cease and it is possible to meet the British in all friendliness, swapping meat for whisky!" At the end of November the Scandinavian corps were part of the force sent out to meet the relief column. On 9th December the boer forces had entrenched themselves on a ridge, with the Scandinavians along with two other Boer detachments entrenched as outposts. The Scandinavian force was 3 officers and 49 men. Their task was to give warning and delay a British attack. On 11th December, the Highland Brigade attacked. Captain J. Allum in the Scandinavian trenches tells: "It was a rainy, dark night, the men suffering from the cold, which at this time of the year can be severe. Everything was quiet until around 4.30 in the morning, when a few shots were heard on our right. Then silence for a couple of seconds, perhaps a minute that seemed to us, waiting tensely, as an eternity. It was so silent you could hear your heartbeats. Suddenly a firestorm broke out at the foot of the hill on the Boer right flank, and in the next second the mauser's began to smatter, the wounded screamed and the English hurrahs and commands sounded. This went on for about 15 minutes, then silence fell anew. The first assault was beaten back with heavy losses. The Boers had let the English, marching in formation, come very close before opening a devastating fire." I front of the Scandinavians were 4000 of the Higland Brigade: Black Watch, Seaforths, Argylls and the Highland Light Infantry. After the assault had been broken, the British artillery commenced firing. Before the next infantry attack. The Scandinavians were, according to Captain Ståhlberg, firing 18-20 aimed shots a minute. After half an hour firing 200 men of the Seaforths had worked around the Scandinavian right flank, and the losses among the defenders ros. After renewed attacks with the bayonets the position was overwhelmed. 17 men had tried a countercharge, but only eight Scandinavians managed to get back in the boer lines, the rest killed or wounded. Everyone of the prisoners had been wounded.. It then appeared that the fight had been the result of a mistake. At 3.00 General Cronje had ordered the outposts to get back, but this had never reached the Scandinavians. Captain Ståhlberg again: "After three hours our resistance is broken. Our CO, Captain Flygare falls in the beginning of the battle, shot in the heart. Lieutenant Berentsen is wounded and man after man falls, drilled by bullets. The Highland Brigade, with the Gordons on the right encircles us. In the final act they fell over us like hungry vultures, and our resistance is over. Carl Albert Olsson from Gothenburg tries to save his brother Edvin, shot in the head by pulling him under cover. He is attacked by two scots whose heads he smashes with the rifle butt, only to fall from several bayonet wounds. The Swedish nurse Elin Lindblom, serving with the Scandinavian ambulance with the Boers tells: "Early in the afternoon came the seven men who had succeeded in escaping in the battle at Magersfontein (11), six unscathed, a Dane, Krohn, shot in the heel. The rest of the 49 Scandinavians who had been sent to the forepost, were dead or wounded and the wounded were prisoners with the English. Our ambulance men had gone out with the wagon and in the evening they brought some of the wounded Scandinavians with them, among them Appelberg. He was shot in the stomach and died after a few days and he was buried after a post-mortem examination by a German surgeon. But during the whole day wounded Boers had come in one after the other, some of them wounded who needed bandaging to return to the battle, some in such a state that we had to find place for them in the tent as best as we could. The most seriously wounded man, apart from Appelberg, was perhaps a Boer, named Sauer, who was shot through the throat, and we feared that the spine was injured. We washed and bandaged them as best as we could and gave them water and food. A mobile ambulance cannot do much in these cases, but it was better than nothing. Our tent was entirely full by the evening. The battle continued uninterruptedly and it was impossible for our ambulance men to go to the battlefield where our men had fallen. It became quiet only after three o'clock on Tuesday afternoon and then they could go there, where they found eighteen dead and two wounded; all the others had been brought by the English to their ambulance. The wounded were two Finns, Backman and Viklund, who were in such a bad state that the English had bandaged them provisionally and left them on the battlefield. They had considered them as hopeless. We also thought this, when they were brought to us on Tuesday evening. Backman was delirious with three bullets through the leg, the whole legbone splintered by a bomb, one bullet in the breast and out through the back which was fearfully torn; it was a miracle that he had not bled to death. Viklund was seriously shot through his tender parts and had one flesh wound in the arm as well as heatstroke owing to sunburn. We feared that his spine was injured. They had lain on the battlefield from 5 o'clock Monday morning to 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon in the burning sun and bitter night cold, robbed of all their clothes. For even here pillagers are found. We had a German surgeon who had no ambulance to work for and helped us to bring those who could be transported, to the hospital. The nearest hospital was at Jacobsdal, one day's travel away or a little farther from our spot. They were sent toJacobsdal with some of our men. Because Viklund was so seriously wounded we thought it better to keep him with the ambulance until we could see how his condition developed." The dead were buried on the battlefield, where a monument was erected in 1908. After Magersfontein the Scandinavian Corps was sent to Bloemfontein, where they reorganized and received 80 men as reinforcements. They were part of General Cronjes command, which capitulated at Paardeberg on 27th February 1900. The Scandinavian POW were sent to St Helena, three of them escaping before the ship left Simonstown. Two let himself be buried in the sand while bathing, and a third jumped overboard with a lifebelt and a knife. All three reached the boer lines safely. The Scandinavian ambulance continued to serve until the end of the war. In 1920, 15 members of the Scandinavian corps received the medal "voor de anglo-boeroorlog" at a ceremony in Stockholm, three of them nurses. Another 30 Swedes got their medal at the South African legation in Stockholm 1937, six of them receiving a "Dekoratie Voor Trouwe Dienst" as well. The monument, which still stands at Magersfontein, was an initiative of the Swedish officer Erland Mossberg, who had served in the Cape Town Town Guard during the war. He was an officer originally in "Jämtlands Fältjägare" (translates roughly as "Jämtland Rifles"), the medical officer of Jämtlands Fältjägare was Josef Hammar, who hade served in the boer forces. Mossberg started to collect subscriptions for a monument. The money were quickly raised, with support of national newspapers. The monument consists of a 6.5 metres high steel, with four corner stones 15 metres high representing the different Scandinavian countries. The names of the men killed is on the monument, which was inaugurated on 25th april 1908 by Pime Minister (and former Boer general) Louis Botha, an honour guard of the Kimberley Regiment present. The monument is placed some distance away from the scene of the actual battle, as the land owner of the battleground ( a scot) didn't want a monument to former enemies. The countries are represented by different inscriptions: SWE: De kunde icke vika, blott falla kunde de (They could not falter, only fall) DK: Nu hviler deres ben bag höjen Bautasten. (Now their bones are resting beneath high stele) FI: På tappra män ser tappra fäders andar ner. (On brave men, brave fathers spirits looks down) NO: Nu tier stridens larm paa valen, I mindet lever heltens ry (Now the battles din is silent on the ramparts, in the memory lives the heroes reputation) Killed in the battle or DOW: 11 December 1899 Magersfontein Danskar 1 Goetterup, Arthur, Naskov 2 Jacobsen, Peter Marius, Köpenhamn 3 Olesen, Frede, Torskind Finnar 1 Kruts Gustavsson, Matts, Nykarleby 2 Mattson, Emil, Nykarleby 3 Hägglöf, Henrik, Wexala (avliden 14 dec) Norrmän 1 Dahlén, Johannes, Larsnäs 2 Nielsen, Oluf, Drammen (avliden 12 dec) 3 Olsen, Einar, Mandal Svenskar 1 Ahlström, Conrad, Lilla Malma 2 Andersson, Julius, Stockholm 3 Appelgren, Carl David, Oskarshamn, fältkommissarie 4 Benson, Albert, Göteborg 5 Benson, Edvin, Göteborg 6 Flygare, Johannes, Natal, Captain 7 Johnson, Nils Alfred, Brunsby, sergeant 8 Landgren, Oscar August, Göteborg 9 Lindström, Emil, Ronneby 10 Mark, Oswald, Göteborg 11 Nykvist, Nils Harald, Göteborg 12 Olsson, Carl Albert, Göteborg 13 Osberg, Fredrik, Göteborg 14 Stael von Holstein, Otto, Kristianstad Tyskar 1 Lindeberg, Gustav 2 von Rassau, Frans Nominal roll of known participants in the Scandinavian corps: The Scandinavians Sw = Sweden Dan= Denmark Nor= Norwegian Fin = Finaland Abrahamsen, A.B.

  2. Can someone please help me identify the history of my two zulu spears please!!!!email is deanespach@yahoo.com
  3. Hi all. Again I ask for help in my search found another South African medal "QSA" with 3 claps. however it is in Bronze (did not know about the Bronze medal) the seller said she apparently has no inscription on the edge (!!!) this is common? Cheers Lambert
  4. Hi Can anyone help me with information regarding this organisation? The Burgher Unie of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek. Apparently there were 300 members who all received a 9ct gold medallion with membership number stamped on the back, and only 12 female members? Genl Jan Smuts was also a member and his membership number was No 218. There is a full members list, but none of the museums could help... Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. I'm normally no slouch when it comes to researching medals to the South African Constabulary but I must confess, a new acquisition from the recent City Coins auction has me stumped The medal is a 5 clasp to 564 1st Cl. Trooper F.J. Price. A perusal of the medal rolls, of which there are 2 for Price, shows him to be Frank J (James) Price. There is also a shipping manifest outbound from SA to the UK in 1920 where Price is mentioned as a policeman. Could the fact that he seems to have stayed on with the Police after the amalgamtion of the various forces in 1912 be the reason why I can't find his SAC in the Archives or any reference to him? Input from members who might know where I can look next would be highly appreciated. Regards Rory
  6. The South African Republic - the Boers existed until the Peace of 1902 - minted their own coins in Pretoria from 1892 to 1898. British and Commonwealth soldiers and officers - took many of these coins home and later had them mounted as cufflinks. I showed a pair with 1/2 Kruger gold coins on the Coins section. This pair have two sixpences (6d's) as the main front coin - then a small silver link chain - and then two, three penny silver coins (3d's). These are always known as tickeys in Sth. Africa and were a favourite for the Christmas Pudding. One of these is a Kruger coin - the other dated 1910 - is an Australian 3d. coin. I feel almost certain that these belonged to an Australian who served in the Boer War - he just didn't get around to the cufflinks until 1910.
