Prlvilegia militum (privileges available to soldiers) emanate from a tradition which can be traced throughout the centuries. In most modern legal systems this favouring assumes the form of a general payment and/or procedural respite. In other words, a moratorium. Jn this contribution the Roman-Dutch law is identified as the focal point where these privileges for the first time coagulated, in a legal technical sense, into general moratorium. The residue of these and also that of particular moratoria, which may be found in the legal systems of the Republic of the Orange Free State and the South African Republic, prior to, during and at the end of the Anglo-Boer War is discussed in this paper.
