Military Infobox[edit]

This is probably beyond my capacity, as I could only edit without much knowledge on this topic. The way I understand it this article refers to the participants of Second Boer War. To highlight the historical significance, I have added the military infobox. If this article is not as specific as I think it is, I would appreciate if someone could include the First Boer War for me as well. I need a second opinion, since I am not entirely familiar with this topic . Thanks --Gerogia 22:17, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Famous Volunteers[edit]

I read somewhere the Vincent Van Gough's youngest brother was a Boer volunteer as well. He commited suicide after being taken prisoner. Perhaps someone better versed than my self could source this and add it in. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.255.195.116 (talk) 16:58, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
