On Service Voices – Monday 14.05.18      from 6 to 7pm Adelaide Time (or listen again any time after 7pm)

Today we look at the Boer War and in particular the South Australian contingents involved in it.  Tony Stimson, President of the South Australian Boer War Association  imparts knowledge that the majority of Aussies have never heard before.

Tony Stimson:  A controversial war

Why did Australians volunteer to fight in a war where there was no obvious Australian interest… and why is it sometimes called Australia’s forgotten war?  Is that a contradiction? What did the South Australian Contingents who fought there think of South Africa…  the people, the landscape, the climate, and the Boer enemy? Tony Stimson gives an enlightening, interesting interview.

The Boer General who stirred up a hornet’s nest in modern day South Africa

This Boer General died in 1914, and had been widely regarded as being one of the strongest military leaders during the Boer War.  Listen in on Monday 14.05.18 for the details
