The Friends of the BCA invites you to join us on a guided 5-6 km Battlefield Walk & Talk.
Dave Honour, a registered FGASA Guide, will lead the Walking Group on the re-opened Trail.
Cannon fire and Drummers from the Cape Town Rifles – The Dukes, will lead off the walkers.
On the walk you will follow the route taken by British 1st Brigade after their march from Melkbosstrand into position under the blistering sun on 8th January 1806.
We then follow in the footsteps of the 2nd Brigade – Scottish Highland Regiments as they charged the Batavian line.
Establish where General Janssens assembled his Batavian defence line against the invading British force.
A map and brief of the Battle will be provided to assist in your understanding of this historic event which influenced Africa.
