Found in Glenorchy Church.



The Battle of Elandslaagte was a battle of the Second Boer War, and one of the few clear-cut tactical victories won by the British during that conflict. However, the British force retreated afterwards, throwing away their advantage.



Gordon Highlanders in 1899. 2nd Gordons played a key role in the flanking infantry attack at the Battle of Elandslaagte on 21st October 1899
