The British War Memorial and graveyard at the Battle of Spion Kop.

South Africa, in particular, and southern Africa, in general, have been beset by wars, battles and skirmishes for centuries. There have been civil wars, racial battles and confrontations which continue to this day. The Boer War was fought between the British and the Boers (Afrikaners) of the Orange Free State and the Transvaal Republic from 1899 to 1902. The British finally won after a long protracted guerrilla campaign. The Battle of Spion Kop took place on the 23rd and 24th of January 1900 during the Boer War about 34 kilometres south of Ladysmith in the province of Kwazulu Natal. Spion Kop is the name of a hill. Although the Boers won the day it was more a pyrrhic victory as they were unable to follow-up on their success. Spion Kop area, Ladysmith District, Kwazulu Natal Province, South Africa.
