Was one of the unfortunate batteries which Colonel Long took too close at Colenso (see 2nd Queen's).  The six guns of the battery were lost.  One officer and 5 men were killed, 1 officer and 16 men wounded, and 3 officers and 40 men were reported missing.  Lieutenant Holford was mentioned in the despatch of 17th December 1899 for gallantry, and two drivers got the distinguished conduct medal for attempts to rescue the guns (see General Buller's despatch of 30th March 1900).  In the same despatch another man was mentioned for good work in the relief operations.  In the second phase of the war four guns of the 14th Battery were much with Colonel Pilcher's column, and operated for a time in the Orange River Colony and elsewhere.  One man gained mention in Lord Kitchener's despatch of 8th May 1901.
