Photograph, 3rd China War, 1900.
No. 2 Company was the last of the sapper and miner units to land in China, reaching Teintsin on 11 August 1900. The company was employed for a time on the Teintsin defences and on 19 August took part in an engagement to disperse the Boxer forces threatening the city from the south west. Towards the end of 1900 the unit was occupied in the bridging and preparing winter quarters, as well as, during the following spring, in demolishing wrecks in the Pei-Ho River.
