    During April 1902, the main Boer body besieging O’Okiep was at Steinkopf: a very strong position, so well masked by hills and natural defences that it was impossible to ascertain the Boer strength.


    In addition, all attempts at getting on their flanks proved fruitless. On 26 April 1902 Lt-Col Caldwell made a reconnaissance towards the Boer positions.


    They were too weak to attack - four men were wounded.


    Again, on 28 April 1902, 2 companies of the East Surreys managed to advance to within 400 yards of the Boer positions and a company of DEOVR occupied a position from the koppies above Steinkopf. The British lost 4 killed and 3 wounded.
