A.13 5287 Pte. J. Poole, 17th Lancers
Private Poole was severely wounded at Tarkastad on the 17th September 1901.
Lord Kitchener's despatch of the 8th October 1901, details the action:
On the 17th September 1901 Smuts' commando arrived at Modderfontein, eighteen miles north-west of Tarkastad, where the Boers made a most determined attack upon a squadron of the 17th Lancers, under Major Sandeman, posted to close all egress to the south. The enemy being dressed in khaki were taken for our own troops and got to close quarters, with the advantage of ground, before the mistake was discovered. Thus taken at a great disadvantage, our men offered a most gallant resistance, and worthily maintained the traditions of their regiment. The losses of the squadron were very severe, 3 officers and 20 men being killed, and 2 officers and 30 men wounded. The Boers, who had evidently made the attack in order to elude the close pursuit to which they were subjected, also suffered heavily before the approach of another squadron of the 17th Lancers compelled them to break off the engagement.
With nine colour photographs of the military cemetery and the 17th Lancers memorial at Tarkastad.
