Continuing from the Vlakfontein Monument I now went to the site of what is loosely known as the Stump Monument.
Next to “The Brickworks” is the spot where the cottage stood where Jameson surrendered to the Boer forces (Google Earth co-ordinates: 26° 12.441’S, 27° 48.431’E). I had missed seeing this site before, but the images here were kindly taken for me by Leon Engelbrecht in 2009.
There were two seperate plaques although both said basically the same thing. There was even a resemblance of a fence.
That concluded my excursion into Doornkop. There are two more Jameson Raid sites to mention at this point. The first is at Burgershoop Cemetery in Krugersdorp, and the second is in what is known as Randfontein Estates Gold Mine Military Cemetery.
