BOER INVASION OF NATAL. 1899 envelope to Johannesburg with a Transvaal ½d cancelled DUNDEE NO 13 99. Volksrust NO 15 and Johannesburg 16 NOV 99 transit and arrival cancels are on the back. The envelope is from Rev Dr J. H. (Joseph Herman) Hertz, who in 1913 became the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Empire. As President Kruger tried to expel him in 1899 for his pro British sympathies, what he would have been doing with the Boer Forces is a mystery! An interesting cover from the Boer Invasion of Natal.
