Joined General Buller in January 1900. They do not seem to have got into action at Spion Kop, but they had their guns on the top of Swartz Kop, opposite Vaal Krantz, in the beginning of February (see 2nd Queen's), and they were engaged in the final effort at Colenso and Pieter's Hill. In the second phase of the war the battery was engaged in many different parts of the country. In the first half of 1901 they had two 2'5 guns with Spens in the Eastern Transvaal (despatch of 8th July), and part of the battery was that year in Cape Colony, where they gained several mentions.
