Trace of Intelligence "agent" - Major H. Adye 1899

Recommended Posts


Please help.  I have stumbled on an interesting piece of material which purports to be ABW related.  In fact it seem to point to a possible scenario of intelligence gather going back before the date of the document [01/08/1899].  The intelligence gathered seems to be regarding maps & crossing etc for troop movements.  The document is signed [Major H.Adye] with the date 01/08/1899.

As I am sure you know, the October 1899 start of the Anglo--Boer War is roughly two months later and the information gathered would require some time.  Thus it creates a dilemma of prior planning.

Much appreciate any trace info or help on Major H. Adye (that is all I have got).  Transvaal area 1899.  See Attachment

Thank you
