I acquired an Album of UK newspaper clippings covering the earlier part of the Boer war about 40 yrs ago. They are mostly still in the original album & contains some well know war artist sketches & their reports from the battle fields.
The clippings aren’t dated - but the Tugela River is outside Colenso. There are some setbacks the Br. encounter at Tugela, & the battles at & around Colenso.
I’m not sure how to send private messages to you. Initially the few jpg’s were all flagged as too big.
The clipping are unsorted & as stuck in at the time we’re appeared in newspapers.
Hi Seaton, The clippings certainly sound interesting and could be a wealth of information. If you are thinking of posting some of the articles on the Forum, there is a spot just below where you type in messages called attachments,
1. If your jpg's are too large, I usually edit them down in size using the standard Microsoft edit function. cannot remember the max size, but usually about 140 / 150 kB should do it, then
2. if you click on "Attachments" as discussed above you should be able to follow and load the picture up.
3. there is also a function you can click when you are in point 2, that will show attachments in the main body of the message
