After Pretoria: The Guerilla War at page 834 refers to the aftermath of the battle of Bakenlaagte which took place on 30 October 1901. It mentions that an `immense mass of evidence officially collected' relating to the aftermath of the battle showed `how total was the absence of discipline in the Boer forces, how incomplete was the control of their men by the commandants, and how brutal was the temper of those who could thus maltreat and murder the suffering.' It appears that 75 men lodged statements concerning the events of that day and officers reported on it to Lord Kitchener. Detail is given regarding the deaths of certain named men including, for example, Rifleman 1902 F Foster K.R.R.C.
As I am trying to research the involvement In the battle of a member of the King's Royal Rifle Corps who was severely wounded there, I was wondering whether that evidence may refer to my man directly.
Does anyone know where that mass of evidence may now be, since I can find no reference to it in the South African National archives?
