Boer War records have been added to the Forces War Records database, and these records contain data about members of the British and Commonwealth Forces who were issued campaign or gallantry medals during the second Anglo Boer War 1899-1902.
The war ended with the Treaty of Vereeniging, signed on 31 May 1902.

Canada sent 7,368 soldiers and 12 Nursing Sisters to the Boer War.
The personnel records include medal registers, land grant applications, and correspondence relating to those who served.
One interesting thing I found was that L. Beverly Webster from Kentville, Nova Scotia (a distant relative of mine), served with the British Army, and he is recorded in the Forces War Records as having died in England.
But a legal reprensentative made an application for land grantis on his behalf, but he didn't live long enough to enjoy the benefit of being awarded the grant of land. His body was sent back to Nova Scotia, and he is buried in Kentville.
