They came into being, these corps, and you at home know nothing of the labour and travail that attended the birth. You did not know of swearing adjutants, sweating remount officers, despairing C.
In most cases these forces bear the names of the men to whom they owe their inception—men who have given, in addition to their names, service, fortune, and, in the case of poor Montmorency, that charming gentleman who fell with his Guides, life.
Indeed, the prologue is scarcely written, but the interest of that portion of the story deserves attention. A few months ago the world of sport—that world that is not satisfied with shooting over preserves, but looks towards Somaliland and Rhodesia for the pleasures of life—was grieved to learn of the sudden death of Mrs.
She it was who, with Mr. Colenbrander, had accompanied Mr. Rhodes in his daring indaba in the Matoppos, and her fame throughout Rhodesia was no less than that of Johannes Colenbrander—that mighty hunter whose name is a passport from the Swaziland border to the Zambesi.
Her tragic death came like a thunderbolt upon Johannes, and finding life under the old conditions unbearable, he resolved to sell out his every possession in Rhodesia and find distraction in the Transvaal. Indaba Zulu —A council or meeting of indigenous peoples of southern Africa to discuss an important matter.
Colenbrander— "if you giveme leave to recruit. There was not a hoarding in Capetown, Port Elizabeth. The Pioneer Regiments, the local volunteers, in fact, every corps on service, were soliciting recruits, and every dorp or town throughout South Africa had its recruiting office.
At this Lord Kitchener demurred. I want you to fight. Then Johannes Colenbrander sat still, and looked around for his officers. His second in command was easily found. Wilson had the eye and mind for organisation.
Colenbrander had the love and trust of his fellows throughout South Africa. Both were brave, strong men. Between them they chose their officers. They were men who had "shot for the pot" from their youth up—men who had wandered away from time to time from the beaten tracks, and made paths through the unknown wilderness of the north.
Pioneers who had carved their names in the primeval forests, and had set their monograms down in cleared townships. They were men who were wont to disappear at intervals from the Bulawayo Club and turn up a few months later with a new stock of reminiscences, and the fag end of an attack of fever.
The officer commanding one squadron was down at Massi-Kassi in the days of the Portuguese raid, and his subaltern calls Barotseland "home. And so with the men. They, too, know the bad backland, and carry tabloids of quinine in their pockets. They are here in Matjesfontein, with their two spare horses and their Cape carts, with their native scouts and pom-poms.
If they by any good luck get the order to chase De Wet they will get him, for they have the pick of the horses, and reject twice as many as they accept from the remount officer. They will not take anything that has a suspicion of "crock" in his composition, and in consequence they will be the finest mounted force that has ever chased a Boer commando.
In the meantime Webber, who is the remount officer, is turning grey. He was a storekeeper charged with contravening Proclamation 1a ofand he had elected to give evidence on his own behalf.
He was being subjected to a stiff cross-examination of one of the ablest of staff officers, Captain G. Marker, of the Coldstream Guards, and in answering a question pressed by the prosecutor, the prisoner put the case for the British Government in a nutshell.
The prisoner had a store in Sutherland, and when the peripatetic commando halted the while at the sun-bathed dorp, its commandant had found him a very useful substitute for a supply officer, and his store not a bad imitation of a supply base.
A proclamation has just been issued laying down rules and restrictions regarding payment of compensation for damages sustained by the Cape colonists; and if the above candid confession does not justify the most stringent reservations, nothing does.
From time to time the Government of this colony issue certain statements pertaining to the military situation, and it is seldom, if ever, that these documents do not finish up with the smug and comfortable assurance that "the invader is gaining little assistance from the colony.
It is worded so as to make the people of England believe that, so far from receiving support or assistance from the Cape Dutch, the invaders are being discouraged in every way from their nefarious purpose.
That fewer Dutchmen are taking up arms and joining the invader than was anticipated is, undoubtedly, a fact.
Also, so long as there was a possibility that the arrival of a Boer commando would mean a considerable carrying over to the profit and loss account in the books of the Boer storekeeper, that there was some resentment shown on the part of these worthies is also a fact. But then there arose the glorious vision of compensation.
And then came peace. With the generosity of men contracting debts for others to pay, they would give the looted one credit for twice the amount of goods they had taken. There was no need to join the enemy, no need to take up arms and suffer the discomforts of a campaign.
Also they were happy to supply the Boers with information.Example: McDonalds uses push strategy to sell its products.
