1902 South African NAAUWPOORT Sterling Silver Medal Boer War Period Henry BourneUnique and interesting antique Edwardian either Medal or FOB. Touch marks are 1902/03 and the date on the piece is 1902, the last year of the Boer War. Given the reference to NAAUWPOORT I believe it is a medal awarded to someone.
My research indicated that there was a "British Brothers League" that was a militaristic organization in London who were vehemently against the Boers - working towards a British victory in the conflict.
There was a second group formed in 1900 called the League of Liberals that opposed aggression and militarism in South Africa.
I am wondering if this rare piece is a part of that history. Hard to say really without a name tied to it or any documentation that would directly connect the piece to that period of UK history.
