    Note: "I had to hold Caesar's Camp as a matter of brag to prevent the enemy's big guns from gaining the position. An important corner of this position was held by 16 soldiers of the Manchester Regiment without an officer from 3 o'clock in the morning till the sun was sinking low in the west, with the result that 14 men lay dead across the entrenchments, and two of them, one of them wounded, held the position till we had, by God's help, an opportunity to clear them off with the aid of the gallant regiment of Devonshire." — General White at Capetown.
