    Towards the end of November 1901 Rimington received information that a Boer Council of War was convened by De Wet and he decided to move with all troops within reach to the scene of the “Krygsraad”.


    The fighting force moved rapidly but two convoys under Major Bennett of the NSWMR lagged behind. At dawn on the 30th November the convoys were attacked on 3 sides by some 500 men under De Wet.


    A hot fight raged round a commanding hill which was charged by a troop of the Inniskillings under Lieut Oliver. Oliver was killed and the troop driven off, but a squadron of New South Wales MR retook the position.


    At this point Rimington and the main body arrived and easily dispersed the Boer force.
