" I travelled upas far as Ingogo with Captain Reed, R. A. (now a V. C. ); thence on toSandspruit, and on again in a Scotch cart, which Major Carney, R. A. , M. C. , lent me, to Grass Kop, a hill six miles off the station and some6, 000 feet high. Ugh! I shall never forget the drive and the jolting, and the sudden cold after Durban weather. Still I was able to rejoinmy guns before dark, and to receive them over from LieutenantClutterbuck who had been sent to relieve me when I was obliged toleave... the front. He fortunately had a share in taking this hill withthe Dorsets when in command of my guns. With a whole battalion atfirst of Dorsets under Colonel Law (who had dug marvellous goodtrenches), and later on with three Companies of the South Lancashires, and after that two Companies of the Queen's (note the descending scaleof numbers), we defend this position, monarchs of all we survey, andtherefore bagging all we can get, not only of the numerous guineafowl, partridge, and spring buck dwelling on its sides and in itsravines, but also, it must be confessed, of the tamer and tougherbipeds from surrounding farms that were nearly all deserted by theirowners.
