Once again, Stirling's "The Colonials in South Africa" rides to the rescue of Forum members.

A check of SAFF might also assist in numbers of casualties, etc.

IL.

FSburgher,

The information from Sterling is here plus the nominal roll and list of casualties: www.angloboerwar.com/unit-information/so...hburners-light-horse

If you enter 'Wounded' into the Notes search box, you can filter the 14 men wounded.



Best wishes

FSBurgher,

There are several detailed posts on men from ALH. If you search the Titles for Ashburner, you will find them:
