A small patriotic medallion made by SWAN ... on the Queen Victoria Profile side is.....BRITISH TRANSVAAL WAR 1899-1900. The diameter is 3/4", Very good condition as pictured.
The Second Boer War was fought from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902. The Second Boer War was fought between the British Empire and the Dutch-speaking Boer inhabitants of the two independent Boer republics: the South African Republic (Transvaal Republic) and the Orange Free State. It ended with the annexation of the region under the British Empire, ultimately forming the Union of South Africa as part of the Commonwealth. The conflict is commonly referred to as The Boer War but is also known as the South African War outside South Africa, the Anglo-Boer War among most South Africans, and in Afrikaans as the Anglo-Boereoorlog or Tweede Vryheidsoorlog ("Second War of Liberation") or the Engelse oorlog (English War).
Together with the earlier First Boer War (December 1880 to March 1881), this period is known as the Boer Wars.
