"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

In 1911, Lieutenant-Colonel P. L. Murray, produced a marvellous Boer War reference detailing all the contingents sent from Australia to South Africa, giving a brief history of the formation and finally, listing all the soldiers who saw service in South Africa with that unit. The book was called, Official Records of the Australian Military Contingents to the War in South Africa. It is now the standard reference and starting place for any person interested in pursuing information about Australian involvement in the Boer War.

From - Lieutenant-Colonel P. L. Murray, Official Records of the Australian Military Contingents to the War in South Africa, p. 8:

 

Extract from Report of Major GL Lee, New South Wales Lancers

Monday, 15th January:

About 5.15 p.m I saw Colonel Porter with Warrant Officer Duncan and Private Buckhotz, 1st Australian Horse. The latter reported that Lieutenant Dowling's patrol had been surrounded and cut up, and that he was the only one who had escaped. Warrant-Officer Duncan and two others had been detached by Lieutenant Dowling to examine Foster's farm, and so escaped.

The patrol had reconnoitred, according to instructions and was about returning to camp when Warrant-Officer Duncan with two men was detached to examine Mr Foster's farm at Kleinfontein. After doing so, he went in search of Lieutenant Dowling's party, failing to find them, he concluded they had reed to camp. At 4:30 p.m. I was informed that a Now South males Lancer patrol had, been cut up.

Upon examination it was found that Sqdn. Sergeant-Major Griffin, 1st Australian  Horse, had been killed, and Corporal Kilpatrick, New South Wales Lancers; was found severely wounded through the lungs, and lower jaw smashed.

Corporal Kilpatrick expired at 11 a.m.

One officer (Lieutenant Dowling) and 13 men are still missing.
