Boer War Memorial at Maitland Park

Compiled by Fred Goode for the Maitland Boer War Memorial Honour Roll June 2002. Fred is looking for descendants of the volunteers to sponsor their ancestors name and donations from the public to help with the cost of the memorial, click here to contact Fred

Over 12,000 Australians served in the Boer War 1899 - 1902, the first arriving in South Africa in December, 1899. Listed below are 265 veterans from all areas of the Hunter Valley. The Australian War Memorial website has background information on the Boer War and the searchable Boer War Nominal Roll Database. A good read (my copy was borrowed on an inter-library loan arranged through my local library) is 'The Colonials in South Africa 1899-1902' by John Stirling, which lists the Australian contingents, when and where they left Australia, their activities in South Africa, details of those mentioned in despatches with related honours and awards.
