The following pictures come from an article in the ILN 'A Reply to Allegations of British Inhumanity to Boer Prisoners: The Bermuda Camps' by Frank H Vizetelly, dated 23 Nov 01.

Having visited Bermuda. the author finds no problems. "If England had sought for a perfect paradise to which she might transport her former enemies, Bermuda, the land of perpetual sunshine and azure sees, must have been that place".

The author says over 3,000 Boers are in Bermuda. "Darrell's Island is the temporary abode of the irreconcilables, from which several daring attempts at escape have been made, and here 851 burghers are detained. Morgan's Island is occupied by 884, including 27 officers; Tucker's Island accommodates 809; Burt's Island, 607; Port's - the hospital - Island, 35.
