I think I could with reasonable confidence bet money on it being Spearmans Hill looking over to Spionkop.

Hallo

The mountain is definitely Spioenkop. I lived near Ladysmith before and have seen it numerous times from all sides. I even flew over the moutain in a small aircraft once. It was rather interesting to see the extent of the trenches from up there. One can't get such a good overview when earthbound.

The direction of the view on the photograph would be more or less from Mount Alice, although I haven't been on this exact spot yet.
