Hello can any one help me with the days events at Roodeval 7 June 1900
I have a medal to a Shropshire Light Infantry man who it is stated was wounded there
The Regimental History is very sparse in giving any details
I would like to know what the incident about and what the 2nd Shropshires enfoldment was
Any help much appreciated
Philip

Philip,

It does not merit a mention in Stirling: 'After Pretoria had been occupied the 19th Brigade guarded the railway for some distance south of the capital, the headquarters of the Shropshire Light Infantry being at Rhenoster, in Orange River Colony'

Have a look at p264-5 from the Times History for a more detailed account: www.angloboerwar.com/images/pdf/TimesHistory04-07.pdf

Philip,

This map shows the location of the camp/stores depot, aka the 'station' at Roodewal.
