Historical military art prints of the Battles at Doornkop, Colenso, Sanna's Post, Modderfontein Farm and Relief of Ladysmith during the Boer War. All prints published by Cranston Fine Arts, the military print company.

Battle of Elandslaagt, 21st October 1899.   During the Second Boer War, a Boer Force led by General Koch, were attacked by a British force under General French, consisting of three battalions of Infantry and 5 squadrons of Cavalry.  The British pushed back the Boers from their position on the high ground looking over Ladysmith and the Dundee railway.  The Boer losses were 250 Killed and wounded and over 200 captured, including  General Kich.

Battle of Klip Drift, 15th February 1900. A small cavalry action consisting of the 9th Lancers commanded by M. Little and the  16th lancers commanded by  Major S. Frewen. Both commanded by Brigadier General J.R. Gordon. Who charged the Boer Position.

Battle of Colenso: From that sleepy hollow among the hills of Natal where Sir George White made his gallant stand we heard the booming of cannon and hoped that help had come at last. Our deliverers, we knew, had to face fearful odds. Before them stretched a billow sea of mountains with an unfordable river in front and securely entrenched in these hills lay the Boer marksmen. In order to engage the enemy General Buller's troops had to cross a long level plain and to expose themselves to a deadly fire. Our guns poured a tempest of lyddite upon the slopes beyond the river, but they remained as silent as the tomb. With courage that needed no urging three brigades advanced - the Irish on the left, the English on the right and between them Lyttelton's brigade, with orders to act in support. As the dauntless Irish approached the curve of Tugela they were met with a devastating fire of rifle and pom pom. on they pressed with ever thinning ranks until the bank of the river was in sight. But where was the ford? To cross at that point was impossible and for hours the gallant Irish had to endure the storm of lead which belched from the distant foothills. Nor was the English brigade more fortunate. The Boers had evidently anticipated attack on the bridge and had concentrated their heavy artillery and quick firing guns at this point. Moving forward by short rushes some of the leading regiments succeeded in reaching Colenso and established themselves in the railway station. Their losses had been heavy and it is doubtful whether they could ever have crossed the river. An incident changed the position to hopelessness. Two field batteries and six naval guns had been ordered to support the assault. With characteristic dash Colonel Long carried his guns into range of the enemies' rifles and a terrible struggle raged around them. From the security of their trenches the Boers kept up a steady fire until man and horse were laid low under the hail of lead.  Every gun had its litter of dead, yet there were not wanting brave men who refused to abandon the batteries. Colonel Long fell shot through the arm and the liver, and soon there remained only a few survivors who, being unable to work the guns, took refuge in a donga. Seeing the effect of this disaster, General Buller gave the order to retire, and the regiments withdrew in sullen silence. But the guns were still at the mercy of the enemy. "Who will save the guns?" cried the General. The response was immediate, and led by 3 aides-de-camp the volunteers set out on their desperate enterprise. Their gallantry was useless. None could live under that murderous fire; but Roberts, even in death, won an undying name.

Jameson's Last Stand, Battle of Doornkop 2nd January 1896 by Richard Caton Woodville


Jameson's Last Stand, Battle of Doornkop 2nd January 1896 by Richard Caton Woodville

In 1895, Leander Starr Jameson assembled a private army outside the Transvaal with the aim of invading and overthrowing the Boer government. The idea had been to encourage civil unrest among foreign workers (Uitlanders), and use the outbreak of open revolt as an excuse to invade and take over the territory. But Jameson grew impatient and so launched the Jameson Raid on 29th December 1895, and managed to push within twenty miles of Johannesburg before superior Boer forces compelled him and his men to surrender at Doornkop on the 2nd of Janaury 1896.
