QSA (3) DoL, Tvl, L Nek (5653 Pte. T. McDermott. Liverpool Regt.)

“Buller met with some opposition on the 23rd August near Van Wyk’s Vlei, and towards evening two companies of the 1st Battalion Liverpool Regiment entered by mistake a hollow out of sight of the main body, where they came under a heavy fire, losing 10 men killed, and 1 officer and 45 men wounded.”

Roberts’ dispatch of 10 October 1900 (LG 8 Feb 1901, p867)

Pte McDermott was severely wounded and died the same day.

He is buried in Machadodorp.
