Boer War, 1899-1902, South Africa.
Fought on the side of the Boers on General Hertzog's commando throughout the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902). In 2001 at the age of 37 He was captured on the farm, Skanse, in the Fauresmith district and was marched nearly
70 km to Orange River Station. Thereafter he was sent to Bermuda in leg chains where he was a prisoner-of-war for two years. At the end of the war the British wanted to send
him back to Russia, because he was not a naturalised citizen (burgher). The Red Cross intervened on his behalf and he was eventually repatriated to South Africa. During the
war, Moses Segall's shop and house were burnt down by the British. Smuts and Hertzog advocated on his behalf and he received financial compensation for the loss of the shop. He re-opened his shop in Springfontein in 1903.
During the First World War he supplied mules to the South African troops in German West Africa, now Namibia.
