Boer War 1899-1902 

Surnames J

These pages are a memorial to the 34 Tasmanians who lost their life in the Boer War. As part of the British Empire, Government of the day offered troops to fight the local farmers (or Boers) in South Africa. Tasmanians served mainly in mounted units, often known as “Mounted Rifles”, “Bushmen” or “Imperial Bushmen”.  They fought in both the British counter offensive of 1900 and in the long, weary guerrilla phases of the war lasting until 1902.
