FarguharJosephJoseph Farquhar, whose name possesses immediate Ladysmith associations, namely the early and memorable action at Farquhar's Farm, was a very popular personality as Mayor. While Sir George White and his Staff were very much in command of the situation, Mr. Farquhar's advice and local standing were of great importance to the military and civilian populace alike. His stirring address to Sir George, following the successful relief of the town by Buller, has long since been recorded in the annals of Empire history
