Members of New Zealand's Sixth Contingent burn a Boer farm, 1901. This photograph was possibly taken by Private William Raynes. During the second phase of the war Boer farms were often cleared of their inhabitants: houses and possessions were burned and the livestock either taken by the British or destroyed. As a result of this method, more than 30,000 farms were burnt and up to 3.6 million sheep were destroyed.

Personal recollections testify that there were beatings and kicking of "Undesirables" in the camps by the British soldiers. The British burned the homesteads, killed livestock and destroyed crops. Women and children of burghers in the field were labeled "Undesirables" treated much worse than those of men who had surrendered.
