Thanks, Mike, that was utterly captivating! The eyewitness accounts all overlap to a great extent, and unless there are contradictory accounts which we don't have, it's very likely they were shot after surrendering.
I can't recall any other instance of prisoners being shot, by either side - can you?
thanks again
Rob
The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.

Hi Rob.......

I heard but cannot confirm that the Scouts were so mad about the the murder of their CO that and unofficial order of no prisoners went out.....

Here is another so called report..........

www.angloboerwar.com/forum/8-events/2652...-flag-incident#51109

And of course there was the Breaker Morant incident...... In the trial of Morant the Strathcona incident was brought up in their defence......
