A ZULU WAR MEDAL WITH 1877-8-9 CLASP. A Zulu War medal with 1877 - 8 - 9 clasp named to Segt P. C. Van Niekerk B/3rd Cape Yeo.

The Cape Yeomanry were raised as a properly funded local militia by the Cape Government in 1878. Their purpose the defence of the eastern frontier of the province.
They were disbanded in 1881

The Van Niekerk's were heavily represented in the 3rd Cape Mounted Yeomanry.
There was:-
Captain C.J. Niekerk  1877-78-79
Lieut. J.A. Niekerk     1879
Serg, G.L Niekerk      1877-78-79
Serg. P.C. Niekerk     1877-78-79
Serg. P.C. Niekerk     1879 returned to Woolwich mint.

The 3rd Cape fought at Moirosi's stronghold 29/05/1879 suffering 15 casualties.

Seems the Niekerks were involved in the beginning of the diamond industry in SA

Something of a misnomer for the seller to refer to it as a “Zulu War Medal”, as the Cape Yeomanry were not in action against the Zulu.

Just me being pedant.

I think its is a common thing for people to get confused. People think it is the Zulu War Medal and are not aware of its exact title of the 'South Africa Medal for Zulu and Basuto Wars'; 25th September 1877 to 2nd December 1879.
I popped it on here in for reference reasons in case anyone came looking (plus I thought he diamond bit was interesting.)

Kate Van Niekerk, is probably a lot more common in SA than 'Smith' in England. Very Happy

I think it is because the very word Zulu is a selling aid.
