In the first few months the British suffered many reverses.
Like the White Lion nearby it was not a coaching inn, but was a major Carrier's House because it was next to the Great Market.
In 1900 some 10 carrier's wagons used it as the base to and from the villages on market days.
This token of goodwill is well known from the First World War, but it was also a feature of the South African War.Back in Bury, January saw a rush to raise a Volunteer Company to go to the Cape.Thirty men from the 2nd Volunteer Battalion joined others from East Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Cambridge University to train at Bury. At 5.30 am, in a blinding snowstorm, they were cheered off at Bury train station by hundreds of local people. Rural life was however, in decline as foreign food imports undermined agricultural prices and thus wages.When news reached home the streets were full of celebrating crowds in towns and cities all over the country.In Bury St Edmunds it was decided to celebrate the occasion along with the Queen's birthday on 24th May, and the Mayor had to quickly get arrangements made for a School holiday and a half day shop and business closure.
