About the memorial: Addition to family gravestone, which is a Celtic style cross on a tapered plinth and a base. Sergeant in the Kimberley Horse, killed at Thlotso, 9th March 1880, part of the Basutoland Rebellion 1880 - 81 (known as the Gun War). The Basutoland Rebellion was fought by the Cape Colony with the idea of disarming the Basotho, an object which failed completely, and by the Basotho, in alliance with various tribes in the Transkei and East Griqualand, to drive out the whites. The latter objective was not attained. Many Africans fought for the Cape but there were no Regular British troops other than a handful of Staff Officers. As a further result of the war the Basotho, in time, came, as they desired, under the direct rule of Great Britain instead of that of the Cape.
