4: We could stay here forever And that, in the prophetic words of their commander General Colley, is what most of the soldiers did who fought at Majuba Hill, in the First South African War of 1880-1, the last redcoat campaign, and the last in which colours were carried in action.
Was the Boer commander right when he said:

Or was Sir Ian Hamilton nearer the mark when he said:
