Elria Wessels, Robin Woodruff or any other person, I hope you can help.

I’m looking for names and or information on all escapees of Second Anglo Boer POWs on the Bermuda Islands.

I’m also seeking Bermuda information during the same timeframe about the following persons:

– Nicklaas du Toit from Kalahari (no dates, or other info). Were there more than one?

I shall appreciate any help
