How it works


Published by the British Government for information: Martial Law

Poster (590 x440mm) with slight tears at a few of the folds, a good copy.

Describes the proceeding of a military Court held in Pretoria on 10th June for the trial of P.R. Krause and J.F. Delport who were sentenced to death, and the consequences for the residents of towns in the Transvaal who attempt to escape and join the enemies of His Majesty the King should they not heed the regulations imposed on them. It is signed by J.G.Maxwell, Military Governor.

General Sir John Grenfell Maxwell, GCB, KCMG, CVO, DSO, PC (11 July 1859 - 21 February 1929) was a British Army officer and colonial governor who served in South Africa during the Second Boer War (1899-1902). He commanded the 14th Brigade on Lord Roberts' march to Pretoria, and after the successful occupation of that city was appointed Military Governor of Pretoria and the Western Transvaal in 1900, serving as such until March 1902, when he relinquished the office to allow for gradual extension of civilian rule. As governor he filled a difficult post "with great tact and ability ... gained the confidence and esteem of the general public" according to a contemporary news report.   (British_Army_officer)
