70 Private R. Smail – Cape Town Highlanders

Died of Wounds received – Jacobsdal – 25th October 1900.

Action at Jacobsdal:​“The Cape Town gunners took up quarters in the west wing of the office the day after arriving, but the Highlanders remained encamped on the Market Square. Veldkornet Bosman knew the little town intimately, and under cover of darkness and rain he and a group of about 70 men entered Jacobsdal with the 15-pounder as their main objective. Just as dawn crept over the veld on October 25, the gun sentry sensed movement behind the low stone wall encircling the gunner’s outpost. His challenge was immediately answered by heavy rifle fire, and he rushed into the gunner’s quarters to give the alarm, whilst the men in the Highlander’s tents awoke and jumped up in bewildered astonishment. A number of Highlanders were hit before they could even get out of their tents.” ‘The Cape Town Highlanders 1885-1970’ by Neil Orpen – (pages 49 and 50)

The battle lasted the whole day until Lieutenant Hare arrived with supplies for the post. Orpen carries on (pages 51 and 52) – “With the timely arrival of hare’s little force, the CTH and their supporting detachment of gunners had beaten off the attack, but the price had been a heavy one, and all through the night and the following day the trenches were manned and everyone was kept on the alert, whilst everything possible was done for the wounded. Ten men had been killed in action. The list of dead was increased when Privates W. Digne, J. Moore and R. Smail died of wounds.”

Hi there, this is many years later, but I've just stumbled across lot G507. Cecil Ernest Stevens was a relative of mine. Can you tell me who bought the lot or where it is now?

Many Thanks

Walter Stevens

It's good to be able to find a family medal, and to know it is actually in existence and safe in a collection.

How was he your relative? Do you know anything about him? What are you looking to do?
