The volunteers arrived at Cape Town in March 1900. Following a brief period at the Natal front they returned to Cape Colony concentrating, with other units, north of Kimberley. For thirteen months thereafter they operated about south western Transvaal and Orange Rive Colony, at various times trekking to Vryberg, Christiana,  Lichtenburg, Ventersdorp and Potchefstroom. For a few months to October 1900 the Company joined the garrison at Krugersdorp and for six months to May 1901 formed part of the garrison at Smaldeel in the Orange River Colony. Although not involved in any major battle the volunteers engaged in numerous skirmishes with the enemy to the close of their tour of duty in May 1901.’
