1900 - Sydney Morning Herald - Boer Forces and Losses. The Boer Red Cross Identity Depot estimates that the Boer forces in the field amounted to 75,000; that 3700 were killed, and 32,000 prisoners were taken, of whom 700 had died.

1901 - The Argus - Boer losses. Despatches received by the War Office from Lord Kitchener show that between March, and May 6 the British captured from the Boers 35 guns, including two "Long Toms," one 4.7in. gun, and one Creusot gun. Lord Kitchener also reports that during the last four months 7,084 Boer belligerents were killed, wounded, and captured by the British.
