A BIOGRAPHY OF ROBERT DE KERSAUSON, FRENCH VOLUNTEER WITH THE BOOER COMMANDOES

C. De Jong

Abstract


One of the most colourful foreign volunteers in the Boer army in 1900-1902 was Robert de Kersauson de Pennendreff; young, handsome, gallant and devoted to the Boer cause until the bitter end of the war. His love for South Africa brought him after an absence of almost 40 years back to this country to find a quiet place to live when many other countries were suffering in the Second World War.
