  • Great site. My grandfather fought at both Ladysmith and Elandslaagre. He was in the Imperial Light Horse and was wounded on Wagon Hill. Lucky for me he survived and came to Western Australia where he raised his family.
    I would love to visit the above museums and battlefields. Perhaps I will one day.
