“On the night of 10/11 December 1899 Digby-Jones RE VC blew up a Boer 4.7 inch Howitzer during a night sortie. On their way down they were attacked by the Pretoria Kommando, the young Deneys Reitz among them. The Boers killed 11 men of the Rifle Brigade. A cairn in their memory is situated at the base of the hill.
Access to this site is difficult and permission has to be obtained from the landowner. The use of a Guide is recommended.”

  • Truly very interesting. Thank you for the lovely pictures on this webpage. I am reading the book Kommando: Van perde en Manne by Deneys Reitz.

    Thank you so much. It makes it all so much more visual.
