Revealing some misconceptions

Posted by Cheryl on Mon June 26, 2023 in History.

Join Dr Robert (Rob) Davidson at the National Army Museum as he reveals some misconceptions about the Spioenkop Campaign.

Rob grew up in KwaZulu Natal and has spent the past 40 years visiting the sites of the battles of the Upper Tugela River, interviewing people and researching information for his book, The Spioenkop Campaign. He will be discussing this often-overlooked campaign to relieve the besieged town of Ladysmith during the early stages of the Boer War. In this eagerly anticipated talk, he will use eyewitness accounts and battlefield research to put Spion Kop into its proper context and address common misconceptions about the larger campaign.
