Siege of Ladysmith Lifted

28th February 1900

During the Second Boer War, the 118-day Siege of Ladysmith is lifted.

In 1899 the Boers, armed with the latest European rifles and artillery, drove through Natal to help themselves to a seaport - Durban - only to spend their energies in laying siege to the market and railway town of Ladysmith.
