Hello Peter,

I have the following little bit of info:

In Kimberley-- Two armoured trains working towards Mafeking

In Mafeking--One armoured train called "Mosquito"

In Bulawayo-- One armoured train called "Powerful"

In Natal-- One armoured train called "Hairy Mary"

Info found in the Hall Hand Book of the ABW.

Thank you Adrian


Hairy Mary was covered with ropes after the incident on Nov 15 at Chieveley. She remained as such until June 1900.

With IMR, there were 20 armoured trains - including the original 5 mentioned.
