The Northumberland Fusiliers


Boer Attack on the Rearguard


De la Rey's Boers attack the Northumberland Fusiliers, the rearguard of the convoy of wagons near Klerksdorp on 25th Feb 1902. Dunning's narrative tells of a bayonet charge by the battalion during which he was shot several times and became unaware of the fight going on around him.
