    The Oxfordshire Light Infantry had, along with the Buffs and Gloucesters, sharp fighting with Cronje’s rear-guard on 16th February 1900. The enemy were found to be occupying a large kopje on the right bank of the Modder River for the purpose of covering the retreat of their main body and convoy.


    With difficulty the Oxford Light Infantry got across and then advanced to the attack of the position. Several companies got within 200 yards of the enemy, while the West Riding Regiment endeavoured to turn the enemy’s flank, but the Boers held on stubbornly till darkness.


    The Oxford Light Infantry lost 10 killed and about 40 wounded.
