A howitzer battery.
Arrived on 20th February 1900, and joined General Clements near Norval's Pont in March. Got to Bloemfontein in April, and was part of the garrison there till end of August, when two sections went to Johannesburg and one to Springfontein. About the end of 1900 one gun joined Colonel Allenby's column and one Colonel Pulteney's column, both of which were in the big operations in the Eastern Transvaal. In December 1901 the personnel of the battery was, like those of many others, converted into mounted rifles, and under Colonel Dunlop took part in many great drives both in the Orange River Colony and the Transvaal. In one of these Captain G V Clarke was killed on 8th April 1902 (Battery Records). Colonel Dunlop's battalion was made up from the 37th, 43rd, 61st, 65th, 86th, and 87th Howitzer batteries.
