A cool corner: An outpost under cover, Boer fashion

'Our correspondent, who sent this sketch of an outpost of Bethune's Mounted Infantry on the right flank during the advance from Potgieter's Drift towards Ladysmith on February 5 and 6, points out that the Boers always conceal their machine guns and that the irregular troops sometimes follow their example. In the instance shown cover and shade combined enabled the men to take turns in having much-needed rest.'
