New South Wales Imperial Bushmen, War Diary, 2 July 1900
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.
2 July 1900 - Monday
Reveille at 5.30 a.m.. Troops marched out at 7 a.m. and marched leading horses which carried men's blankets and their own rugs, arriving at wagons at 8.50 a.m. distance 4½ miles. Lieutenant Thomas sent on by Captain Waldron to ensure supplies of grain etc being ready at Enkledoorn from the Range.
The Bushmen are on the march with all the expected supplies being delivered to Enkledoorn rather than the pre-arranged point of Range. Great care is taken to ensure the re-supply is successful.
