Image description

Dead horses and cattle, Harrismith, 1900 circa. Photograph, Boer War, 1900 circa. The British relied on thousands of horses and draught animals to draw their artillery and supplies. Many of these animals succumbed to the tough dry conditions on the veldt. The average life expectancy of a British horse, from the time of its arrival in Port Elizabeth, was around six weeks. From an album of 72 images presented to Major-General Horace Smith-Dorrien, GOC, 19th Brigade and showing its operations in South Africa, 1900.
