    Captain Strong and some 70 men of Kitchener’s Fighting Scouts were on reconnaissance duty in the Richmond district and were caught in an ambush by a 200 strong Boer commando while passing through a defile on the farm Klipkraal.


    Eventually, with 4 of his party killed and 7 wounded, Captain Strong surrendered. The subsequent Court of Enquiry found that the party was captured owing to the absence of proper precautions on approaching the defile, the result of want of military training and knowledge. SA Surrenders WO 108/372.
