Hope the attached gives you what you want. It certainly has the two features you named marked on it (Slingersfontein is to the lower right and Rensburg bottom centre), plus the disposition of forces. It's scanned from "With the Flag to Pretoria", pg, 322.

If there isn't sufficient detail available via the website, I can e-mail a copy to you.

Hi there - I have just seen this post now.

This scanned image is from Geskiedenis van die Tweede Vryheidsoorlog 1899 - 1902 Vil IV by JH Breytenbach. The scan is a fraction of the map which I can e-mail you if you contact me sstiles@netactive.co.za . I would also refer you to the map in Vol III of The Time History of the War in SA. Hope this helps.

I did quite a bit of research on the Colesberg actions (inc field trips) in the mid 1980s. Have some diary extracts etc.

Good luck & regards

Stewart
