Q.S.A. 2 bars, C.C., Rel. of Ladysmith, Dvr. A.D. Baseley, 63rd. Bty. R.F.A. Killed in action Spion Kop, 20/1/1900

From 'The War in South Africa' 'At 1.15 two Boer guns and a pom-pom which had lain low all the morning suddenly opened fire on Three Tree Hill scattering the crowd of generals, staff officers, and spectators assembled there. For twenty minutes they engaged in an artillery duel with the six batteries on the hill, and then turned aside and devoted their attention to Hart's advance.'
