Colonel Percy Henry Enthoven commanded 'J' Battery Royal Horse Artillery from January 1900 to February 1901 and was Mentioned in Despatches by Lord Roberts for his direction of the guns at Colesberg on 9.2.1900 (London Gazette 4.9.1901 and War Office records refer).
The Times History reads: 'Clements was left [after General French took the Cavalry and most of the Horse Artillery for the Relief of Kimberley] with a remnant of mounted troops, an infantry brigade, 'J' Battery R.H.A. (Major P.H. Enthoven) just arrived from India, the 4th Battery R.F.A., and sections of 37/R.F.A. and 68/R.G.A. The front which he took over with this attenuated force was about 25 miles in length, and the Boers soon found out how thinly it was now held. Fighting became continuous all along the line, and Clements was hard put to find troops to reinforce each threatened point. On the 9th February, the pressure on the right about Slingersfontein became particularly severe, and a party of Australians under Captain H.G. Moore, emulated the feat of the New Zealanders under another gunner [the bayonet charge led by Captain Madocks], just mentioned. 'J' Battery was kept busy throughout the day, four guns firing over 500 rounds, and the enemy's attempt at envelopment was arrested.'
