"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

"A" Squadron, NSW Mounted Rifles, Antill Letter, 26 December 1899
Topic: BW - NSW - NSWMR_A


"A" Squadron, NSW Mounted Rifles

Antill Letter, 26 December 1899


Antill Letter, 26 December 1899


The following transcript is of a letter written by Captain John Macquarie Antill, Officer Commanding the New South Wales Mounted Rifles contingent to South Africa to the New South Wales Chief Staff Officer and Assistant Adjutant General Colonel Henry Douglas Mackenzie.

From Captain JM Antill
Commander of NSW Mounted Rifles

To the Chief Staff Officer
Victoria Barracks
Sydney NSW


I have to report that the Dayton Granger arrived at Cape Town on the 23rd inst, having lost 3 horses Mounted Rifles and 5 horses Imperial Government. Men all well. The Officer Commanding in Command Captain Birsh expressed himself highly satisfied with the manner in which all ranks carried out their difficult duties. On the 21st inst the unit, together with the Australian Horse left Cape Town the latter proceeding to Arundel to join the Lancers. It is expected that no move for the front is being made for two weeks or there abouts. The health of the men is good and all ranks have given satisfaction in the manner in which duties are carried out.

Lieutenant Tooth reported at Cape Town and by direction of the military Authorities then was taken on for duty. (As Transport Officer). All Regimental transport has been taken over and local wagons and mules with native drivers substituted. The rations and forage provided seems of good quality but as there is no canteen given us and such as are expensive and difficult to procure. All rank badges, swords and colours have been removed by men and officers are difficult to distinguish from rank men. The horses are generally suffering the West African Sickness, in hard cough which despite all precautions attacks all and sundry. The horses we brought over are greatly admired and in demand. I shall report my departure for the front in due course.

Antill Letter, 14 November 1899


The following transcript is of a letter written by Captain John Macquarie Antill, Officer Commanding the New South Wales Mounted Rifles contingent to South Africa to the New South Wales Chief Staff Officer and Assistant Adjutant General Colonel Henry Douglas Mackenzie.

Albany, 14th November 1899

From: Officer Commanding The Troops, SS "Aberdeen"
To: The Assistant Adjutant General


I beg to report, following one from Melbourne, that the SS "Aberdeen" arrived at this port at 10 am this day.

The passage from Melbourne has been very rough, a heavy sea the greater part of the way, finishing with a gale the last twenty-four hours.

No horses have been lost, although two got down yesterday morning, and were with difficulty recovered.

The health of the troops is very good, except a few colds. Private Nicholson (Forbes) Mounted Rifles developed Gonorrhoeal Rheumatism at Melbourne and has been in Hospital since. A Medical Board has reported that he is unlikely to be convalescent for some time, and that as his complaint necessitates isolation and is dangerous to men living in the same quarters I have after consultation with Captain Legge and on their strong recommendation decided to return him from Albany. He will return by the first available boat. I have directed him to report to you on arrival.

The spirits of the men are good, although up to date a number have suffered from sea-sickness.

When weather permits drill and exercise is carried on by both units.

I have the honour to be,
Your obedient servant
JM Antill, Captain
Commanding Troops per SS "Aberdeen".

New South Wales Infantry Contingent, Legge Letter 6 December 1899

New South Wales Infantry Contingent

Legge Letter 6 December 1899


Legge Letter 28 December 1899


After the arrival of Captain JW Legge in South Africa, he sent a series of letters to Sydney describing the activities of the New South Wales Infantry Contingent. They are a mixture of action and issues and so allow the reader to get to know this unit in an intimate manner. The personality of Legge comes through very clearly in his commentaries. The following is a transcript of his letter dated 28 December 1899.


Cape Town
6 December 1899

From the Officer Commanding NSW Infantry Unit
To the CSO, Victoria Barracks


I have the honour to report that, since leaving Cape Town, the regular routine of drills has been carried out, except where interrupted by bad weather.

The health of the men has been good, except some cases of high favour resulting from vaccination, and that of No. 33 Pte Coxhead, who has been reported by the Medical Officer as suffering from rheumatic fever and unable to proceed on Active Service. If possible he will be sent back to Sydney.

There has been no crime to speak of, the few cases being rather the result of inexperience.

On arrival at Port Elizabeth the SS Aberdeen was ordered to Capetown, where we arrived this morning. There has been a great amount of routine to go through before advancing to the front.

I am under orders to start tonight or early tomorrow morning for De Aar, where the rest of the Australian Infantry with us will join one Battalion under Colonel Hoad with Major Eddy as Second in Command.

The whole of the transport and stores have to be left behind with the Mounted Rifles except personal equipment, tents, blankets, WP sheets, and cooking pots, also the Maxim Gun and 1 set of harness.

A buck wagon and Scotch cart, with mules is to be supplied at De Aar.

It is needless to say that we are all disappointed at this turn, as we are prevented from gaining experience through close association with an Imperial Battalion.

The question of pay is on that is full of difficulties. The local Paymaster states that no arrangement has been made at all by the NSW Government. This means that I cannot keep faith with those men who have signed to draw more than Imperial rates in South Africa. Further I am informed that I can only draw and must draw in full for any particular period.

The result is that I cannot draw as much, as they are entitled to, for some men, while for others I must draw more than they are entitled to receive here, on account of payment to their order at home. In the latter case I can hardly make the man sign for a larger amount and receive on a smaller.

I must respectfully ask therefore to be absolved from confusion of accounts, which has been put beyond my control.

The Company Officers and the men are taking 3 day's rations and an emergency ration, and full supplies of Ball Ammunition when leaving tonight, as the line is not in a safe condition on one flank.

Respecting the pay, I beg to point out that I have in hand some £260 undrawn by some of the men. This I propose to use if necessary, although representing savings, and I trust that I may be credited with the necessary remittance monthly. I have acquainted Lieutenant's Holmes and Logan with the contents of this letter, so as to provide for contingencies.

The men appear to be keen and confident, under the circumstances, and they are the only Australians who have had experience with the Martini Lee Enfield Rifle, they ought to do well. Some very fair collective ball firing was done on the voyage.

I have etc
Signed JS Legge, Captain,
Commanding NSW Infantry Unit.

Cape Town, 6 December 1899

Captain Antill desires me to state that he posted his report before leaving regarding the pay and that he fully concurs. It is hoped that the differences between Imperial rates and the portion of the NSW rate drawn here may be remitted as requested. There is further no pay available for the period December 1st to December 8th inclusive.

Signed JG Legge, Captain.

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.
