This page is another example of the extraordinarily dedicated research on the part of Mr Ken Hallock of Idaho, U.S.A., who has now transcribed the Cape Times Weekly Edition news of shipping to the South African War from 1899 - 1902. He has kindly allowed me to reproduce his transcription (plus notes) on this page and I extend my warmest thanks to him...yet again.

Researchers please note that this page differs somewhat from the London Times Shipping News pages, in that Mr Hallock has noted much of the interesting news of the day, including troop movements on land, notes on munitions, news of the departure of regiments, officers, munitions and supplies, and social tidbits of the time (marriages etc.), making this page a highly valuable resource for scholars of the Anglo-Boer War era.
The following guide (in the table below) has been placed at the top of each year's page. Visitors looking for country-and subject-specific information in the Shipping Reports may skip through until they find colour-coded text correspondent to their nation, or subject of interest.
