Winston Churchill (on the right) was himself a famous prisoner during the Boer War. The later prime minister, had temporarily resigned from service with the British military, but was working as a correspondent for the Morning Post when an armored train on which he was present was attacked and derailed by Boer commandos. Churchill was captured by Louis Botha (who himself would later become famous as the first Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa).
