This corps was employed in the Warrenton-Vryburg-Kuruman district, and in the south-west of the Transvaal during the last sixteen months of the war, and saw much hard work and a lot of fighting. The corps suffered casualties on many occasions. They had the ill-fortune to be part of the column of Major Paris, and under Lord Methuen, when that General was defeated by Delarey on 7th March 1902 (see Cape Police).
The approximate losses were 12 killed and over that number wounded out of a strength of 126.
