I am looking for a battle map or location map to cover the Battle of Sekukuni Town, which was the attack on Sekukuni's capital at Dsjate on 27th November, that ended the war. The action included the action at the famous "Fighting Koppie" and during the action Francis Fitzpatrick and Thomas Flawn were both awarded the Victoria Cross.

Any help or advice will be most appreciated.

There is a map on this page: samilitaryhistory.org/vol026nk.html

There are several references at the end of the article which may help too.

I searched the Times but there was no mention of Sekekuni.

Does that help?

David - many thanks for your reply to my post. Do you happen to have a contact at samilitaryhistory.org - I have tried to contact them in the past but with no success.

Best Regards - Mike
