Klip Drift

The massed cavalry of French's Division charge up the valley to overwhelm the 200 Boers defending a position at the end between the kopjes north of Klip Drift.. This effective illustration is by W S Small, from a sketch by G D Giles, war artist. It was reproduced in Louis Creswicke's history of the Boer War. The huge cloud of dust kicked up has had to be omitted for the sake of artistic clarity.
