Framed Hand Stitched Silk Boer War Battle Honours Of The 1st Battalion Manchester Regiment (63rd Foot) With Silver Wire Embroidery. Sn 10429 - 10429
Amidst growing tension between Boers and the British in the Transvaal, the 1st Manchester shipped to South Africa in September 1899. The Battalion arrived in Durban, Natal Colony in early October and was soon afterwards moved to Ladysmith. The War began on 11 October with a Boer invasion of the Colony. After Boer forces captured Elandslaagte railway station, the Manchesters had four companies sent by armoured train to Modderspruit. While disembaking there, the Manchesters and accompanying Imperial Light Horse came under artillery fire. The 1st Manchesters, along with a number of other Regiments, took part in the subsequent assault. The fighting was heavy, with the Boers pouring accurate fire into the advancing Manchesters. Under increasingly heavy fire the 1st Manchesters became the main vanguard of the frontal assault. On 2 November, Boer forces encircled and isolated the town of Ladysmith, beginning a 118-day siege. On 6 January 1900, a contingent of 16 soldiers of the 1st Manchesters came under attack at Wagon Hill, near to Caeser's Camp. Against superior numbers, the detachment held its position for 15 hours. Only two survived. Both survivors received the Victoria Cross for their actions, giving the Regiment its first two VCs. By 28 February, Ladysmith had finally been relieved by a force under the command of General Redvers Buller. The 1st Manchester's then participated in the offensive which followed the relieving of Ladysmith, Kimberley and Mafeking. This is a beautiful original framed Silk Boer War Battle honours of the 1st Battalion Manchester Regiment (63rd Foot). The hand embroided silk with silver wire features a banner '1st Batt Manchester Regt' above Battle Honours of the Regiment, Union flag, Star with Crown '63' (Foot) and Manchester's 'Egypt' embroided badge above banner '99-00 South Africa 01-02'.
