1919 in South Africa
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- 19 March - Jack Hindon dies in Pretoria at the age of 44 He died in the arms of my grandfather's wife, Gerrie. My grandfather John Wassenaar and Jack Hindon were like brothers and fought together during the war. After the war Jack married an Afrikaans woman. He later became ill and ended up in a wheel chair. My grandmother who was a nurse during the Anglo Boer war nursed him during his last days. I am almost sure he died in the Middelburg Tranvaal area, but it could have been Pretoria.
