From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

At Chieveley, on 15 November 1899 an armoured train was ambushed, and several carriages derailed. Approximately 43 men from the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and 12 men from the Durban Light Infantry were taken Prisoner that day, but the incident is chiefly remembered by the fact that Winston Churchill, who was present whilst serving as a newspaper correspondent for The Morning Post, was also taken Prisoner of War - his gallant conduct in action and daring escape from captivity captured the public’s imagination, propelled him into Parliament, and set him on the road to becoming Prime Minister. He gave a full account of the incident in his Autobiography, My Early Life.

QSA (2) Talana, Tvl (5516 Pte. B. Scully. Rl. Dublin Fus.);
KSA (2) (5516 Pte. B. Scully. Rl. Dublin Fus.)

Pte Scully was taken prisoner in the Armoured Train incident. He was held at Waterval Camp, north of Pretoria, and was liberated on 6 June 1900.
