Artillerymen of the Staats Artillerie, outside of Ladysmith, which the Boers unsuccessfully laid siege to for just under 4 months, beginning on Nov. 2nd, 1899.

Members of New Zealand's Sixth Contingent burn a Boer farm, 1901. This photograph was possibly taken by Private William Raynes. During the second phase of the war Boer farms were often cleared of their inhabitants: houses and possessions were burned and the livestock either taken by the British  or destroyed. As a result of this method, more than 30,000 farms were burnt and up to 3.6 million sheep were destroyed.
