Great Chishill

Officers and men of other counties belonging to the Suffolk Regiment who were killed or died of wounds or disease.

Note: Colesburg and Rensburg are close to each other. On and around 6th January 1900 the Suffolks were at Colesburg and ordered to occupy a hill at Rensburg. They advanced up the hill in darkness and the Boers were entrenched at the top. The Boers waited for them to get within yards and then opened up with accurate rifle fire. This caused confusion among the Suffolks, some ran back down the hill, others stood around in the confusion getting picked off. Many were captured. It seems they took a lot of officer casualties because the Boers picked them off while they stood at the front of their men.

Officers:  

Lt. Col. Arthur John Watson

Killed in action at Rensburg, 6th January 1900, age 46, commanding officer 1st Battalion, The Suffolk Regiment. Commemorated on the Suffolk Memorial, Suffolk Hill, Colesburg.

Watson.—Lieut.-Col. Arthur John Watson, p.s.c., 1st Batt. Suffolk Regt., was killed in action near Rensburg, Jan. 6th, 1900.

He was instructor of musketry to his battalion from Feb., i88o, to Jan., 1883. He served with the Bechuanaland Expedition under Sir Charles Warren, 1884-85, as brigade-major, and was mentioned in despatches. He was employed with the Egyptian Army from Feb., 1886, to the following Sept. He took part in the Hazara Expedition in i888 as brigade-major to the First Column, under Brigadier-General Channer, was mentioned in despatches and received the medal with clasp. He also served with the Chitral Relief Force under Sir Robert Low, in 1897, as road commandant on the lines of communications, receiving the medal with clasp. Lieut.-Col. Watson was D.A.A.G. in Bengal from July, 1889, to Feb., 1896. He obtained command of the 1st Batt. Suffolk Regt. in Sept., 1898, and took the battalion to South Africa in Nov., 1899. He fell in a night attack on the enemy who held a kopje which formed the key to their position round the town of Colesberg. The Boers, who were apparently well informed of our intended attack, opened fire and Lieut. Col. Watson was killed early in the fight. A monument has been erected at Colesberg in memory of all those who fell in this engagement.
