This is take from from The Diary of a Doctor's Wife – During the Siege of Kimberley October 1899 to February 1900 by Winifred Heberden
A small engagement took place this morning outside Kenilworth, which village the Boers approached somewhat closely for the purpose of raiding De Beer's cattle. Major Ayliff, C.P. was wounded in the neck; and soon after the enemy retreated to their kopje at a safe distance. Later, they managed to capture some oxen which their owners allowed to stray just a little too far, the native boys being afraid to ride round and drive them back.
The hooter sounded the alarm again at 4 p.m., owing to a brush with the enemy near Carter's Farm. Trooper Lubbe, C.P. was killed, and Sergeant Watermeyer, C.P. wounded. Several Boers were seen to fall from their horses.
