Arrived at the Cape on 17th February 1900. Was attached to Clements' Brigade. Present at the capture of Bethlehem and other actions. In August (despatch of 10th October, para 39) went with Clements to operate in the Megaliesberg, and saw some very hard fighting on various occasions. Four guns were with Dixon in the same district in 1901, when the battery "did well, particularly in the fierce engagements at Vlakfontein, 29th May, and Moedwill, 29th September (see 1st Derbyshire). At least 1 officer and 4 men gained mention in Lord Kitchener's despatches. Very probably there were more, but the number of the battery is often not given.
