I am looking for a battle or location map for the battle of Wesselstroom which took place on 22nd February 1881 during the defence of Wakkerstroom. During the action James Osbourne was awarded the Victoria Cross.

Any help or suggestions will be most appreciated.

I can see many mentions of James Osborne but have yet to find a battle map.

This document contains maps and pictures from the area and may provide some background information or identify the location of places mentioned in contemporary accounts.
