On Terry Sole's book (p. 55) he lists members of the Buffalo Border Guard but without any footnotes. There are several errors in their names and identities and although I've been able to correct most of them, several have defied any attempt to verify or corroborate their forenames and domiciles.

They are:
Robert Money of Langfontein, Helpmekaar
William Haines of Biggarsberg
William Hepburn of Craigside
John Pettigrew of Biggarsberg
Carl Posselt of Redbank, Dundee
Dirk Coetzee of Gladstone, Dundee
Pieter De Waal of Carolina, Ngisana
Jack / Andrew Lennox of Cotswold, Dundee

Talana Museum has been unable to help. If anyone is able to confirm their forenames I'd be very grateful to hear of it with sources.

Perhaps a nicer way to have put this Julian without criticising the late Terry Soles work would be :-

"I have been carrying out some research on the members of the Buffalo Border Guard and would like a little help in confirming the following names and identities :-

Robert Money of Langfontein, Helpmekaar
William Haines of Biggarsberg
William Hepburn of Craigside
John Pettigrew of Biggarsberg
Carl Posselt of Redbank, Dundee
Dirk Coetzee of Gladstone, Dundee
Pieter De Waal of Carolina, Ngisana
Jack / Andrew Lennox of Cotswold, Dundee

I have looked at Terry Sole's lists and Talana Museum has been unable to help. If anyone is able to confirm their forenames I'd be very grateful to hear of it with sources."

There was no criticism of Sole's book per se and your implication that there was is misguided. It is a book which I hold in high regard and I have nothing but admiration for anyone attempting such a task. Anyone who has ever compiled that sort of work knows that, based simply on the sheer volume of detail in the research involved, there will be errors and that corrections will be gratefully received. On that particular page I am seeking independent confirmation of the assigned forenames for those eight men. If you are able to help, I would be very grateful.
