Images of the BOER WARS
The Boer War 1899 - 1902 Just as the six colonies were making their faltering steps towards Federation, they were given the chance to show their commitment to Britain in its war against the Boers for control of South Africa. Contingents of troops left Australian ports from late 1899, and by January 1900 they were involved in major actions. Eventually 16,000 men from Australia volunteered to serve in the war, in which 606 died before the fighting ended in 1902.
