The Battle of Majuba Hill Featured Print

The Battle of Majuba Hill

The Transvaal War: the Battle of Majuba Hill. Majuba Hill was the main battle of the First Boer War, and one which the British resoundingly lost. The officer to the left with binoculars is General Sir George Colley, commanding officer, who was killed by Boer marksmen; to facilitate his ascent of the hill (says the ILN), he took off his boots and during the fighting wore only socks and slippers; the officer in the foreground to whom the doctor is offering a flask is Major L C Singleton of the 92nd Gordon Highlanders who died of his wounds. The figure on the extreme left is J A Cameron, Special Correspondent of the Standard. Date: 27th February 1881

Following the Boer War, the British transferred many of their prisoners to various countries and colonies under their domain in South and South East Asia. The Captain and the crew of the HMS Fox, having come to Diyatalawa, Sri Lanka in 1913, struck up the idea of having their ships insignia displayed on a nearby hillock. With assistance from the Boers, they placed white stones to depict a Fox followed by the year 1913. This gave rise to the particular hill being called the Fox Hill and to this day this hillock is called the Fox Hill. Date: circa 1910s
