Morning all

I am trying to put together an organigram depicting the Kimberley Town Guard Divisions during the siege. In this regard, I have got as far as the attachment but am unsure of the Divisional positions of the following units/redoubts-

Municipal Guard (Capt Rugg)
No 3 Redoubt (Capt Blum)
No 2 Schmidt's Breastworks (Capt Ellis)
Kimberley Mine Ambulance Coy (Capt Cruickshank)
No 1 Coy Medical Corps (Capt Drew)
Otto's Kopje (Capt Dunbar and Capt Chapman)
Kenilworth Defence Force (Capt Adams)

Any information or comments relating to this issue would be appreciated.

Richardabo,

There are two publications that contain the information you seek. One is the Siege of Kimberley which was published shortly after the siege ended and the other is my own book on the siege. Both publications list men by location.

Best wishes

Thanks David-I have numerous references relating to the siege (including your book) which lists the men according to location, but I am yet to see a simple organigram depicting the Divisions with associated units/redoubts and this is what I am trying to determine.

Best regards
Richard
