Head Quarter Staff Office
25th July 1900
the Assistant Quartermaster General
I have the honour to enclose copy of my journal to date and report my departure for Mafeking on Special Service forthwith.
I have the honour to be
Your obedient Servant
This should be read to the officers of the Corps and their subordinates.
It is interesting to note that this column is moving towards Mafeking, obviously to utilise this northern town, recently liberated, as a launching point to outflank the Boer forces in the north.
