To fit with THIS account of the battle, is a list of the German casualties in the Gibeon area. I have a zerox from the South African military archives which I had made while down there. It was typed up by an army clerk in 1915, so there are errors in names and ranks, but a bit of the historical puzzle all the same....

Interesting to see some South African Names in there... must have been Boers who settled in GSWA
