    “…on the other flank, Scobell, quitting Graaff Reinet on the 20th, reached Smithvale next day. He had seen little of the enemy, but hearing of a commando, 120 strong, under Lategan, at Tweefontein, twenty-five miles to the east, at the junction of the Sneeuw and Voor Sneeuw Berg mountains, he detached the Cape Mounted Riflemen, only 90 in number, under Lukin, to attempt to surprise them by night.


    In spite of the length of the march Lukin’s men brilliantly carried out their task. Lategan’s band was completely scattered; many of the Boers fell: eleven, including a Field Cornet, with 105 horses, were captured.” Official History, Vol IV, p232.
