Description

Mohandas Ghandi was a stretcher bearer with General Buller's relief forces after the Siege of Ladysmith and trained some of the 1100 Indians in this dangerous task. It said that they left on the last train out of Ladysmith before the siege. Ghandi and his stretcher bearers are reported to have performed sterling work during the bloody Battle of Spioenkop. In 1993 the Hindu community in Ladysmith paid tribute to the Mahatma by celebrating the centenary of his coming to Natal. Arrange with the caretaker of the Lord Vishnu Temple who will open the gates.
