from a London newspaper showing the
celebration after news of the relief of Mafeking
reached England. Note the portrait of
the "Hero of Mafeking." Winston
Churchill wrote that
the celebration on that night was the largest
celebration seen in England until the night of
the Armistice at the end of World War I.

Wilson, With the Flag to Pretoria, 1902
