HC Deb 14 December 1900 vol 88 c822
Sir E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT (Sheffield, Ecclesall)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is in a position to give the House any further information with regard to a mishap at Magaliesberg, and whether he can state whether the four companies of the Northumberland Fusiliers have been captured, and to what battalion they belonged.

MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)

Will the Secretary of State say whether this is guerilla warfare, or actual warfare?


I have communicated to the papers the whole of the information received from Lord Kitchener with regard to the action in question. We have no reason to suppose from anything Lord Kitchener has said that any troops have been captured. We only know we have to regret the loss by death of four British officers.
