By the time that the Battle of the Thukela (or Tugela) Heights had commenced on the 12th February 1900, the 114-day Siege of Ladysmith was in its fourth month. General Sir Redvers Buller VC had made four attempts to relieve Gen Sir George White VC and the Ladysmith garrison: at Colenso, on the 15th December 1899, along the iNthabamnyama on the 20th/21 st January 1900, at Spioenkop on 23rd/24th January 1900, and at Vaalkrans between the 5th and 7th February 1900. All three attempts had been unsuccessful, and the British casualties had been high.
