    February 1902 opened with Malan’s 800 men harassing Crabbe’s column. 


    Crabbe was clearing the way for Major Crofton’s convoy of 100 donkey wagons, transporting supplies from the railhead at Beaufort West, through the dry Karoo to Fraserburg. 

    The encounter lasted several days and ended on 5 February when Malan attacked the entrenched convoy on Uitspanfontein.

    Crofton, after fighting valiantly, lost his life and the convoy was looted and set alight
