Boer War Prisoner of War ( POW ) Cover - Krugersdorp 6 Mar 1902, Portuguese interest?
This has been addressed to a camp in the Transvaal, but the language is not English but Portuguese and there appears to be reference to ' Lisboa ' ( Lisbon ) in the address. It has seen a lot of wear and is creased, torn and fragile. Probably intended for a captured Portuguese fighter on the Boer's side. Interesting over stamped ZAR stamps with E.R.I. for King Edward VII. Scarce.
The Portuguese Government were not supporters of the Boers as C R de Wet in Chapter 7 of his book reveals "This harbour ( Delagoa Bay ), then the only harbour in South Africa open to us, was subsequently forbidden us by the Portuguese Government, whose officials even went so far as to arrest eight hundred of our burghers (who, for want of horses, had taken refuge in Portuguese territory), and to send them to Portugal. Immediately after their arrival in the port of Lisbon the Boer internees were transported to the 6 internment camps in Portugal.
