Location:

Historical Data:
In the Battle of Nooitgedacht on 13 December 1900, Boer commandos led by Gens. De la Rey and  Beyers combined to defeat a British brigade under the command of Major Gen. Clements. The British had camped in an unsuitable place and the Boer took advantage of this. After a day of action, the British were able to organise a retreat - mainly made possible by the Boer being more interested in looting the abandoned British camp.
