Earlier today I was shown a copy of this newly published book:

'Hill of Squandered Valour. The Battle of Spion Kop, 1900.'
by Ron Lock
Casemate Publishers, Newbury.

Followers of literature on the Zulu War will know of Ron Lock's scholarly works on this war and those of us with a particular interest in the Boer War will be pleased by what I suspect will be seen as the definitive work on the Battle of Spion Kop.

Hello Brett

Thanks for the notification, just ordered a copy. I have taken a keen interest in Spion Kop from a casualty roll point of view.

Should be interesting.

Thanks for the heads-up, Brett!
Just ordered a copy and hopefully it will make it to me in Taiwan by Christmas. I met Ron Lock and Peter Quantrill at Talana several years ago during the ABW Centenary when I took a section from the Transvaal Scottish down to the Dundee festival. Ron & Peter roped us into a reenactment of the storming of Talana. They reckoned we looked the part even if there weren't any Kilties at Talana. Here's a shot of a couple of Jocks slotting in behind an KRRC section.

Cheers,

Mark
