'The anniversary of the relief of Ladysmith: A labour of love in the Intombi Cemetery

A branch of the Loyal Women's Guild has lately been formed in Ladysmith, and at one of their earliest meetings decided to have all the graves of the soldiers who gave their lives in the defence of Ladysmith decorated with flowers. It was decided that the fittest time to decorate the graves would be on the anniversary of the Relief of Ladysmith, February 28, so contributions of flowers were asked for from all parts of Natal. A very large and beautiful collection of flowers and wreaths was received and he ladies of the Guild laid them reverently in the cemeteries of Ladysmith, Intombi, Surprise Hill, Nicholson's Nek, Waggon Hill and Caesar's Camp. All of these resting places are fenced and well cared for.'
