    Scott’s Railway Guards were involved in protecting the Orange River-Kimberley railway line and assisted the Royal Engineers in repairing damaged bridges, culverts and lines.

    That section of the railway was prone to attacks by roving bands of Boers, bent on disrupting rail traffic, and SRG had much dangerous patrol work to undertake. 

    They often had skirmishes involving loss, such as on 18 October 1901 at Leliefontein, south-east of Vryburg, when Trooper Gunther and Tpr Morrison was severely wounded.
