DIE LONGTOMKANONNE NA DIE SLAG VAN DALMANUTHA

B.V. Lombaard

Abstract


At the beginning of the Anglo Boer War the ZA Republic owned four 155 mm canon. They are often referred to as Creusot Canon as they were manufactured at Le Creusot in the East of France.

The English preferred to refer to these canon as Long Tom, a name by which they also became known among the burghers and civilians. The article below discusses the role and eventual fate of each of these canon after the Battle of Dalmanutha (Bergh- en -dal) which took place during 21-27 August 1900.
