[BOER PRISONER-OF-WAR HANDICRAFT]
Bone Serviette Ring. "St Helena. 1902. K.G. V. / G. Schoeman"
. Bone, or possibly horn, napkin ring, measuring 45 mm (height) by 40 mm (diameter). The body of the ring has a series of diagonally incised lines, and the edges have a toothed effect. Below the top row of teeth is the carved lettering, marked in black ink, ""St Helena. 1902. K.G.V." Above the bottom row of teeth is the maker's carved name "G. Schoeman", marked in red ink. Some of the teeth are chipped, but overall the item has survived well, and is in good condition. The letters K.G.V. are an abbreviation of the Dutch "krijgsgevangene", or prisoner-of-war. "During the period 1900 to 1902 a great number of Boer prisoners of war were shipped to overseas camps... In April 1900 the first POW camp was established on the island of St. Helena at Deadwood. Later more camps were established on St. Helena at Deadwood, Camp No. 2, Broadbottom, Fort High Knoll and Jamestown... To earn more pocket money and to supplement their diet or to buy tobacco, or simply to relieve their boredom, the prisoners turned to making curios, carving toys and many different kinds of artifacts. As tools were scarce the pocket knives of the POWs became the most commonly used tool. For material they used wood, bone, ivory, stone, horn and textiles." - Pieter Oosthuizen: Boer War Memorabilia, pp. 83-4. A list of Boer POWs on St Helena provides the names of four Schoemans with first names starting with G. Gert, Gerhardus and Gideon Schoeman were all captured at Paardeberg in February of 1900 following Piet Cronje's surrender, while Gideon Evert Schoeman of Johannesburg was captured at Boschmanspoort in December of 1901..

BRANDT, JOHANNA
The Petticoat Commando, or Boer Women in Secret Service
(London: Mills & Boon, 1913, 1st edition). . Crown 8vo; original khaki cloth blocked in black and green, with impression of 'The Six Willows, Harmony' to upper cover; pp. xv + (i) + 374 + (ii) + 32; frontis. portrait with tissue-guard; plates. (Hackett, p. 46, 131; SABIB I, p. 274) Cloth very fishmothed and rather worn; archival tape repairs to backstrip at head and tail, length of lower joint, and head of upper joint; hinges also reinforced with archival tape; old tape mark and patch of deletion fluid over earlier penned name on front endpaper; some foxing to edges and endpapers, with sporadic, minor foxing elsewhere; discreet pencilled marginalia and occasional annotations. A modest copy of this work, which is fairly uncommon in first edition format. "An account of work done by Boer women patriots during the struggle for independence. The narrative is based on a war diary relating events in the district of Pretoria, then under martial law." - Hackett: South African War Books, p. 46. "During the British occupation of Pretoria she and her mother secretly carried on a liaison service for the Transvaal burghers from their house 'Harmonie' on the Apies River. It was the hiding place of Boer spies such as Captain J.J. Naude, and was also used to smuggle out information. Johanna Brandt employed a secret code which appeared when pressed with a hot iron, and in which she also kept a war diary. This has been preserved and is now part of the Brandt collection in the archives of the NH Kerk in Pretoria. With her mother she was one of the six volunteer nurses from Pretoria who assisted in the concentration camp at Irene. The desperate conditions in this camp were made known to the outside world by Mrs Van Warmelo and Johanna Brandt by means of a sympathetic person's silver cigarette case. A full description was smuggled out in this manner to the well-disposed journalist W. T. Stead and widely circulated through his journal Review of Reviews." - DSAB IV, p. 55..

CHRISTISON, GRANT (EDITOR)
Ladysmith and Lydenburg. Anglo-Boer War Letters of Alfred Markham
(Pietermaritzburg: the editor, 1993) 0-9583051-3-7. . 225 x 145 mm; card wraps; pp. 20. Edition limited to 200 copies. Very good condition. Letters of Alfred Markham written to his cousin, Guy. "The first letter, written over a period of one month, covers the siege [of Ladysmith]. The second letter, written after the siege had been lifted, was sent from Intombi Camp, situated beside the railway four miles south-east of Ladysmith. By agreement between General White and Boer Commandant-General Joubert, the first sick and wounded had been permitted to leave Ladysmith for Intombi Camp on Sunday, November 5. It was here that Alfred Markham was treated for enteric fever before being invalided back to England. After a period of some months' convalescence, he returned to South Africa, where he joined his company in the Eastern Transvaal. The third and fourth letters, addressed from Lydenburg and Middelburg, cover this period. It was in Middelburg that the first (unsuccessful) peace negotiations, between Lord Kitchener and General Louis Botha, took place in February 1902. Peace was finally signed in Pretoria on May 31 1902." - From Introduction..

DENTON, KIT
The Breaker
(Sydney: Angus & Robertson, 1973) 0207142688. . 180 x 110 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. (vi) + 281. Wrappers very slightly rubbed; gift inscription to inside of upper cover; edges and outermost leaves foxed, occasional foxing elsewhere. Good condition. This book includes a selection of the verse of Harry Morant. "There was a Breaker Morant - he was executed at Pietersburg on 27 February 1902. His crime? Wilful murder of civilians. Yet to this day his guilt remains in doubt. Kit Denton's novel, THE BREAKER, does more than recount the facts and mystery surrounding Morant's death sentence. Full of action and set in three continents, it covers the entire range of the Breaker's activities. We see him as a champion horseman, a likeable larrikin, a popular balladist. We see him in love and in war. Then we see him face the firing squad that will end his life. Was this man of enterprise and imagination also a cold-blooded killer? Or was he a scapegoat?".
