A letter home written by Rupert Wickham appears reproduced in several newsheets of the time: 'Here I am in hospital at Pietermaritsberg and am sending you my coat. You will see I have five bullets in my clothes and small splinters but have come out with only three wounds barring scratches so I have come off well especially as one of the shots went through my left breast pocket and glanced off a small stud and so did not spifficate my heart.'
