The enemy had certainly been responsible for changing the rules when the game was in play, BP was quite right when he issued his warning.

'After the relief: The first train to arrive from the north.

The re-opening of communication with the town by rail was a day to be remembered in Mafeking. The first train came in from the north piloted by the armoured train with its ingenious ropework covering. The fact that the train was able to enter so soon after the relief was largely due to Colonel Plumer's work in preserving the line.'

'Dodging shells at Mafeking: Officers bolting into their 'dugout'

When shells fell persistently in one part of town, there was a general scamper for the dug-out. These were holes in the ground covered with loose stones and sand, and ventilated by drain-pipes or barrels with the bottoms knocked out. The underground shelters were the only sage places at times.'

Drawn by H M Paget from materials supplied by Major Baillie, Special Correspondent of the 'Morning Post'.
