Good Morning...…

Two things..... The owner of this site (David Biggins)was in SA this year I understand so he may ne able to help..... Also there is a book printed in 2000 called A TOURIST GUIDE TO THE ANGLO BOER WAR 1899-1902 compiled by TONY WESBY-NUNN, I.S.B.N. 0-620-24978-1, do not know if this is still available..... There are a number of maps in there that might be of use.....

RGJ,

There's a contemporary map of the battlefield on this page

I will see if I can find a more general map too.

Kind regards
David

Thanks David
I have managed to find quite a few and am meeting a local historian who lives on the site in a couple of weeks to clarify positions
