In 1884, the telegraph detachment units were amalgamated in the Telegraph Battalion; and that was the position until the outbreak of the First World War. This Battalion saw service in Bechuanaland in 1884-85. There was however, an exception made in the use of stamps produced and printed for the British Army: two Cape of Good Hope values, the 6d Bright purple Wmk Cable Anchor and the 1s Blue green Wmk Crown CC, overprinted “Military Telegraphs.?were brought into use by Sir Charles Warren when he entered Vryburg in Bechuanaland on 7 February 1885 (The Warren Expedition 1885) and were never used for civilian purposes.
