QSA (3) Cape Colony, Paardeberg, Driefontein (1488 Pte. M. W. Holland, CIV)
Mounted for display in glazed silver frame, 83mm x 133mm, hallmarks for Birmingham 1901, bearing a silver plaque ‘Montague Wilmot Holland, City Imperial Volunteers & London Rifle Brigade, killed in action near Brandfort S. Africa, May 3rd 1900’,

Montague Wilmot Holland was born in Bromley, Kent in October 1874 and was educated at Wellington College. A clerk with the firm of stockbrokers, J & A Scrimgeour, he was also secretary of the regimental football and cricket clubs and a member of the Highgate branch of Blackheath Harriers. He joined the 1st City of London Rifle Volunteers on 22 March 1895 and served in South Africa with No. 1 Mounted Infantry Company, City Imperial Volunteers during the Boer War. He was killed in action by shrapnel on 3 May 1900 at Brandfort.

Corporal R. W. Waters described the events surrounding Holland’s death in a letter published in the City Press on 6 June 1900:

‘After marching for about six miles we came in touch with the enemy, and had some extreme range firing, our section driving the Boers out of their positions. We stormed several kopjes with fixed bayonets, but the Boers had booted. I was sent forward to scout and found a big nullah in front, along which I went until I came to a farm. While I was gone towards the farm our party occupied a portion of the nullah, and opened fire at long range on some kopjes to the left front, where a great many Boers were seen to be moving. Orders came for us to take a kopje on the right front. Mr Wilson protested that the Boers were in strong force on the left, and that we should be outflanked. The orders were imperative, and repeated by three orderlies, so we left the nullah and advanced. We had not gone about 200 yards when the Boers commenced shelling us, the first shell, I am sorry to say, mortally wounding Sergeant Kingsford, my sergeant of H Company of the L.R.B. and the third (shrapnel) riddling another poor fellow named Holland, also an L.R.B. man. I stayed behind with Kingsford and the ambulance man (Murray) to see if I could be of any service. I asked if I could take him out of the range of fire on my horse, but I was told not to stay, but to rejoin the section, which had retired to the nullah. Kingsford passed away while asleep, and was buried the next day at Zirfontein, where the regiment was encamped with the Fifteenth Brigade. I was one of the pall-bearers. Holland was buried on the field.’

Holland’s face and shoulder had been shot away by the shrapnel blast. He was buried in the field by the chaplain of an Infantry Regiment. Private Holland and Sergeant D P Kingsford were the only two men of the Mounted Infantry, CIV to be killed during the war.

On 17 May 1900, £100 was paid from the CIV fund to his next of kin, Wilmot Holland, 26 Wood Lane, Highgate.

Holland’s CIV memorial was erected in St. Michael’s, Highgate. He was also commemorated on memorials at the Stock Exchange, Wellington College, and St. Jude’s Church, Kensington.

QSA (3) Cape Colony, Paardeberg, Driefontein (938 Sgt. D. P. Kingsford, CIV)

Dudley Perring Kingsford, the third son of Dr. C. Dudley and Mrs Kingsford, of Capel Lodge, Whetstone, was born in 1868 in Hackney, London. A clerk by occupation, he joined the 1st City of London Rifle Volunteers in 1886 and served in South Africa with the 1st Mounted Infantry Company, City Imperial Volunteers, during the Boer War.

An article in the City Press on 21 April 1900, quoting a Daily Telegraph correspondent, mentions the CIV’s first engagement with the Boers at Jacobsdaal and Kingsford’s part in the rearguard action which followed at Riet River:
‘Coming to the CIV’s first experience of real warfare at Jacobsdaal, the writer records that the part which they took in that little affair was an honourable one; and on the same day a section of the corps was engaged in a rearguard action in connection with the capture of the big convoy of 200 wagons at Riet River. At the latter there were only about twenty of the Lord Mayor’s Own present, under the command of Sergeant Kingsford of the London Rifle Brigade; but I am assured they fought in such valiant style as to earn the commendation of Lord Roberts and General Wavell.’

Sergeant Kingsford was killed in action by a shell on 3 May 1900 at Brandfort. A letter from Private G. Gaskill, (CIV and 3rd Middx. R.V.) published in the City Press, 6 June 1900, describes the circumstances:
‘Last Thursday (3rd ult.) we were in action once more, and had some close shaves. We noted an advance guard and about noon were sent to reconnoitre some kopjes on our right front. As we were crossing between two of them a terrific shell fire was poured into us, several shells bursting on my left and nearly upsetting me, but by good luck I did not get hit. They were chiefly pom poms, and if you get hit with one it can make a beastly mess of you. We however, galloped to a small kopje and took shelter behind it. As we were doing this No. 3 section were following us up when the fire was turned into them, and poor Sergeant Kingsford and Private Holland were killed. Kingsford was struck by a shell below the heart, and died within a few minutes, and Holland was riddled with bullets from shrapnel shell.’

Another account of Kingsford’s death, written by Corporal R. W. Waters, was published in the same copy of the City Press. Other references can be found in letters by Privates J. Paynter and G. Hardy in the City Press editions of 13 June 1900 and 20 June 1900 respectively.

In a letter published in the City Press 21 July 1900, Sergeant T. W. Vine states ‘We buried Sgt. Kingsford’s body in the small graveyard at Zwefontein, with full military honours, the scene was very impressive.’ Walter Woodford in his diary, published under the title ‘CIVM.I. South Africa 1900, “L” Co. At the Front’ also describes these events and concludes ‘We afterwards erected a rough cross in his memory with the words, “Sergt. Kingsford, CIVM.I., killed in action Zuurfontein, May 3, 1900”.’

Sergeant D. P. Kingsford and Private Holland were the only two men of the Mounted Infantry, CIV to be killed during the war. £100 was paid by the CIV fund to Mrs B. F. Kingsford, Capel Lodge, Whetstone on 17 May 1900 and a tablet in commemoration of Sergeant Kingsford in All Saints, Whetstone, was unveiled by Colonel Cholmondeley in May 1901, the ceremony being attended by the whole of ‘N’ Company, London Rifle Brigade.
