    At daylight on 16 May Mahon’s north-bound Relief Column made contact with Plumer’s south-bound Relief Column at Jan Masibi’s on the Molopo River, some 18 miles east of Mafeking.


    At 7:30 am the combined force, numbering some 2000 troops with 14 field-guns, set out on the last lap to relieve Mafeking.


    Shortly before 2 pm the Boers made a last attempt at Israel’s Farm to block the relieving force, but the demoralized burghers retired early despite Generals De la Rey and Liebenberg’s utmost efforts.


    The Boer losses: 1 killed and 8 wounded with British losses 32 wounded and 7 killed.
