I recall a reference to the troops involved with driving Kritzinger's commando through the blockhouse line near Hanover Road and that there were DMT's among them.
Can anyone assist with the composition of the pursuing troops?

For your records. There is a mention of a skirmish with Lovatts Scouts and a persuit by Thornycroft and then his capture by Lieutenant- Colonel Doran.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Best regards,

It was actually the Jansenville District Mounted Troops.
