Inhaltsangabe: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 Excerpt: ... we were from the laagers, the work done by the men during the day, and also the fact that the natives would think we were afraid of it, and therefore be sure to stay there, made me consider that that game was not worth the candle. So, having fired some shells into it, with the result of setting a portion on fire, we began our march back to the laager just as the sun disappeared behind the western line of bush. Much to my regret I found that we had again had several casualties. These were: Killed--Trooper J. S. Coryndon, Salisbury Rifles. Severely wounded--No. 4213, Private B. Byrne, 1st Royal Dublin Fusiliers; and No. 4014, Private J. M'Kay, 1st Royal Irish regiment, both serving with the Mounted Infantry; Captain Sir H. McMahon, Bart., Royal Welsh Fusiliers, commanding the Irish company Mounted Infantry. Slightly wounded--One man, Native Contingent. One horse killed. Many kraals had been taken and burnt, and some 100 head of cattle captured; but I doubt if the enemy had lost many men, they took such precious good care to keep under cover! Poor young Coryndon (a brother of the wellknown, in Rhodesia, "Bob" Coryndon, a great hunter and a friend of Mr. Rhodes) had, like Johnson at Simbanoota's, been caught by one of the many traps set; in his case it was a rug, placed in front of a crack in the rock, and had been shot through the head. A fine, cheery, dare-devil boy he was. The following day, October 12th, we rendezvoused early outside Jenner's laager, and moved off at once to Chena's. There were several among those I talked to on the subject who were against going to this kraal again, arguing that as we had set it on fire (I am told that the burning of a kraal is an accepted sign of defeat among the natives), there was little more that we could do...
