1900 - Ian Hamilton captures Heidelberg. Clements attacked between Winburg and Senekal.

From the diary of Lt Burne RN:

Rode about all day looking at the defences with our Brigade Major (Wyndham), selecting positions and giving my opinion on some of them. Was asked to lunch with General Brocklehurst and Staff (Wyndham of the Lancers, Corbett of the 2nd Life Guards, and Crichton of the Blues) and had tea with them as well — all a very nice lot. Trains are running through to Standerton where the Commander-in-Chief and General Clery are at present.
Dr David Biggins
