BoyleCecil DLieutenantHe was taken prisoner by the Boers at Dewetsdorp on November 23rd, 1900, and was shot probably on January 2nd, 1901.  This officer's death formed the subject of a trial for murder, which took place in February 1903, at Bloemfontein, the prisoner being acquitted.  It appears that Lieutenant Boyle when captured by the Boers, was tried by a Krygsraad presided over by General De Wet and was acquitted.  Lieutenant Boyle was however, afterwards taken to a lonely spot and told that he had been sentenced to death.  He then knelt to pray and was shot in the back while doing so.  The man Barend Celliers who was acquitted admitted shooting Lieutenant Boyle, but stated in his defence that it was done by order of General Philip Botha.
