New South Wales Imperial Bushmen
This is an extract from the War Diary written by Major David Miller, Adjutant of the New South Wales Imperial Bushmen who arrived in the Mozambique port of Biera and then moved to Rhodesia as part of the journey for deployment in South Africa to see action in the Boer War.
3rd August 1900 - Friday
Left Zeerust at 8 a.m. arrived at camping ground at 4 p.m.. The Column now consists of two Brigades. Lord Errol's Brigade having joined General Carrington's Division. Supplies issued by 6.30 p.m. Mules much distressed. Spare wheels and poles are most necessary. All loading should be most carefully done and every vehicle should be labelled in a conspicuous manner as to the contents. A wagon-man should accompany each transport wagon.
Departed Zeerust with two brigades - General Carrington and Lord Errol's brigades. Miller opines about supply packing and movement.
