Saturday 25th November

Our men went out about 4 o'clock this morning in the direction of the Lazaretto & Otto's Kopje.  We could hear that some heavy fighting was going on.  This sortie came off successful, our side capturing 33 Boer prisoners beside wounded.   I saw the prisoners being marched down to the Front & they looked an awfully poor miserable crowd, half starved.  The loss on our side unfortunately was 6 killed & 29 wounded principally Cape police and Kbly Light Horse.
