    “Hussars and Lancers had a narrow escape during the morning. They were out reconnoitring and were caught between 3 hills when the Boers poured in volley after volley amongst them.


    The men galloped for all they were worth and got off with the loss of 5 men killed, 20 wounded and 30 horses killed. Hussars set fire to Pepworth’s homestead which the Boers had used for Com. Stores. Heavy shelling from Umbulwana.


    One shell fell close to me as I was returning from a bathe in the river.”
    Boer Campaign Notes taken by A J Crosby (Natal Carbineer), published by Ladysmith Historical Society.
