Regarded by the British as one of their most nettlesome adversaries in that dirty guerrilla war, Lotter was captured in a bloody early September ambush when matters were well into an unpleasant scorched-earth endgame.

1901 South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War. They were built by the British to protect the railway bridges from Boer attacks.
