AnnettJ WLieutenantHe was killed in action at Eland's River August 4th to 6th, 1900.  Sir A Conan Doyle considers that this stand on the Eland's River "one of the very finest deeds of arms of the war".  The force numbered 500, Victorians, New South Wales Bushmen and Queenslanders, with 130 Rhodesians. "2,500 Boers surrounded them, and most favourable terms of surrender were offered and scouted".  During eleven days, 1,800 shells fell within their lines, but "neither the repulse of Carrington, nor the jamming of their only gun, nor the death of the gallant Annett, was sufficient to dishearten them".  They were sworn to die before the white flag should wave over them and bravely held out till relieved by Brigadier General Broadwood.
