At the investment of Ladysmith the Manchesters were stationed at Caesar's Camp where they experienced heavy fighting on November 11 and again on January 6, 1900. In the latter engagement losses were severe. Following the relief of Ladysmith the Battalion formed part of General Buller's force in the advance on Lydenburg. From late 1900 to the close of the campaign the unit served under various commanders in the eastern Transvaal. A casualty list is included for each action at which the Battalion was present'.
