Five hundred members of the Queensland Mounted Infantry and the New South Wales Lancers were with the Kimberley Relief Column which captured the Belmont Hills on 22 November 1899. Victory came at a high cost. The British lost 75 men killed and 220 wounded. The majority of the Boers escaped. Their losses were 15 dead, 30 wounded and 36 captured.
