1900 - Diary of the siege of Mafeking by Edward Ross

Sunday 15 April

Sale in the morning and sports in the afternoon.

Been very seedy, in bed for two days, same old complaint, my blood temperature 104 in the shade.

Volley firing about 8 this evening towards the north. Suppose the enemy have spotted some of our runners again.

It is rumoured today that the enemy’s big gun has been seen on the road going to Pretoria. When or by whom I cannot yet find out; I should imagine the wish is father to the thought.

From the diary of 2nd Lieutenant Nigel K Charteris, Royal Scots, at Wepener

Sniping and shell fire continuous. Our casualties up to date are 120. Raining.
