    On this date Major Capper’s column (12th Lancers and Colonial Light Horse) had a short but sharp engagement with Commandant J J Smith’s Rebel Commando at Wilgebosch Drift near Hopefield. 

    The dense high shrubs and trees as well as the difficult terrain on the riverbank gave excellent cover to the Rebels who suffered no casualties.


    British losses were 3 men killed and 4 wounded. Four men were taken prisoner, but after being relieved of their horses, rifles and ammunition they were released.
