On the morning of the 24th of January 1900, a 75mm Krupp gun and pom-pom was positioned near here to support the counter-attack on Spioenkop by Commandant Hendrik Prinsloo and his burghers.
On the same morning Major General Neville Lyttelton sent the King's Royal Rifles to assault Twin Peaks. The force was split in two. The attack on this peak was led by Major Buchanan-Riddell who died during the assault. On the afternoon of the 24th the Kings Royal Rifles captured Twin Peaks but were unable to capture the 75mm Krupp gun or the pom-pom.
When Buller heard that Lyttelton had sent the King's Royal Rifles to Twin Peaks he ordered that the troops should be recalled as he believed the attack was too difficult. Lyttelton complied and when Buchanan-Riddell's men signaled their success they recieved the reply "Retire when dark".
