These young Boer commandos, from left, Paul Grobler, Pieter Grobler and Martin Kruger, rode for two days from Pretoria to Majuba Hill to commemorate the defeat of the British there on 26 February 1881 in the First Boer War.
The vuur en beweeg (fire and movement) guerrilla tactics used by Boer Commandant Nicholas Smit at Majuba are now regarded by military strategists as being years ahead of their time. The battle of Majuba Hill also led to the signing of the Pretoria Convention in 1881 between the British Empire and the newly created South African Republic. "Remember Majuba!" was the British battle cry during the Second Boer War.
