Only having just graduated from a "Fresh Recruit" this is the first time I have come across these wonderful "Now & Then" images - can we have some (lots) more? The superimposition one is superb and the lady who created it is to be congratulated.

Having put a lot of energy during my life in trying to conserve lepidoptera in the UK I am interested in the scrubbing up issue. Presumably it means that at the time of the Boer War there were a lot more animals (wild & domestic) roaming the countryside chomping on the emerging scrub and stopping it developing.

Then and now - Spioenkop campaign - ambulance wagons at Major Moir's 11th Brigade Field Hospital at Fairview Farm. These wagons would take the serious casualties, typically after 24 hours, across the Tugela River 5 miles to Sir Frederick Treves' No 4 Stationary Hospital, an 8 hour journey.The journey on rough tracks in a wagon with no suspension was described by several soldiers as being excrutiating. The volunteer bearers of Gandhi's Indian Bearer Corps carried a few special cases in comparative comfort.

Rangeworthy Military Cemetery is today on the same spot (GPS -28.65016, 29.46855) for men who died on Tabanyama or who died of wounds in the field hospital.
