      Thank you Amanda,I assume the family still lives in SA.
      It is always interesting to hear from relatives especially if they have any documented history, photo's, recollections/stories or other items the POW 's brought back..

      Dear Robin,

      I don't know if this is of interest, but my relative, Herbert Baumann,
      was a POW on St. Helena during the Boer War. He returned to South
      Africa almost blind.

      With kind regards,

      Amanda Jermyn

      I note from The Tourist guide to the Anglo Boer War printed in 2000
      that Mr Basil George whose Grandfather remained on the island was
      operating as a guide at that time.

      Schulenburg' s contributions and wonder if this is a relative of your
      self. are you by any chance located in St Helena or South Africa as it
      would be of interest to meet with you also.
