Lord Kitchener- South African Despatches - 8th March 1901- Military Operations For Sale

This fascinating and extraordinarily rare document is the original report to the British Parliament still bound by the original piece of string. The document is a sixteen page report presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of His Majesty -on the 8th March 1901

The document right sets out the state of the war with the boers - with Kitchener gleefully reporting on the routing of the boer forces in all areas except for the northern part of Transvaal - around Pietersburg and to the east around Pilgrims Rest - where the veld pond was defiantly struck in 1902.

See also the bank notes printed in Pietersburg (1901) and Te Veld notes in Pilgrims Rest (1902).

The main action between General French (British) and Commandant General Botha (boers) is summarised in the despatch by the capture thus:
296 Boers killed and wounded
177 Prisoners of war
555 surrendered prisoners
784 rifles
199,300 rounds rifle ammunition
6,289 horses
26,927 cattle
175,514 sheep and
1,747 wagons and carts

Days later Commandant Botha rejected Kitchener's surrender terms and the boers moved north to Pietersburg.

The document was previously in the military collection of David D Levine - his notice pasted in inside front cover - see above.
