We buried them together.
Ex-Burgher H.K. SHEPPARD, of the Transvaal told this story during the
celebrations at Ladysmith a few days ago: “Next morning we came back on to
Spion Kop. A man SWARTS and I walked about this hill and saw, sitting between
two rocks, a Tommy. His rifle was pointed at us. We levelled our guns and
advanced to him cautiously. We thought he slept. When we reached him we saw the
tiny mark of a Mauser bullet between his eyes. He was dead. SWARTS stepped
forward and said: ‘I want his rifle.’ He jerked it, but the stiff finger of
the dead man was around the trigger. The shot was fired and SWARTS fell dead at
my feet, hit as the ‘Tommy’ was between the eyes. We buried them both in one
grave just there.”
