All That Was Left Of Them After Richard Caton-Woodville

Chromolithograph after Richard Caton-Woodville (1856 - 1927), 1901. Published by Gilbert Whitehead and Company Ltd as a supplement to "Holly Leaves Christmas Number", 1902

On 17 September the presence of a squadron of the 17th (The Duke of Cambridge's Own) Lancers at Modderfontein farm, 25 km north-west of Johannesburg, was reported to General Jan Smuts, whose commando was starving and short of horses. Smuts ordered a section forward to locate the British cavalry, while he brought up the rest of his men. The advance section ran into a troop of the 17th Lancers which at first mistook the khaki-clad burghers for British troops from another column. When the Boers opened fire, bringing down several of the Lancers, the survivors withdrew to a low, stony ridge further down the road which was held by the rest of the squadron armed with rifles, a machine gun and a mountain gun.

At this point, Smuts arrived with the main body of his commando and attacked the Lancers from a hill to their rear. Close-quarter fighting developed in which the gun crew were killed; the rest of the squadron fought to the finish, though one troop, posted a little further away, was able to escape after expending all its ammunition, the last few rounds being used to shoot their horses to prevent them falling into the hands of the Boers. The total strength of the 17th Lancers engaged was 140, of whom four officers and 32 men were killed and four officers and 33 men wounded.

The Action Off Ilo, Peru 14 th August 1876 – HMS Shah and Chilean Ship ‘Huascar'

Fine 19 th Century hand coloured engraving published by Griffin &Co. Portsmouth , 1 st December 1880. HMS Shah was a unarmoured iron hulled, wooden sheathed frigate of the Royal Navy designed by Sir Edward Reed. She was originally to be named HMS Blonde but was renamed following the visit of the Shah of Persia in 1873. In company with the corvette HMS Amethyst, HMS Shah attacked the Peruvian armoured turret ship Huáscar which had been taken over by rebels opposed to the Peruvian Government and, it was feared, could be used to attack British shipping. The armoured Huáscar proved virtually impenetrable to the British guns, but the two unarmoured British ships the Shah and the Amethyst had to keep clear of the Husacar's turret guns. In the course of the action the Shah fired the first torpedo to be used in anger, although it missed – being outrun by Huáscar. There is a monument to the ship's crew men in Victoria Park, Portsmouth .
