The MAINE sailed for South Africa on 23 December 1899 with Jennie Churchill and members of the St. John Ambulance Brigade as orderlies aboard. She arrived at Durban on 23 January 1900 and one of the earliest beneficiaries was Jeannie's younger son Jack Churchill, wounded during the Relief of Ladysmith.
