Queensland was the first Australian Colony to volunteer service in the 2nd Anglo-Boer War. After 1st January, 1901, Australian contingents were then members of the Federation of Australia. The brave men and women, who served in the 2nd Anglo-Boer War, are often referred to as ‘Fathers of ANZACs’.
This year the last Sunday of May actually falls on Boer War Day 31st May.
The 31st of May, 1902 was when the treaty of Vereeniging was signed, ending the 2nd Anglo-Boer War. This year is also a significant year as it marks the 120th Anniversary of the relief of Ladysmith, Kimberley and Mafeking in 1900.
