Hello Brian,

I have the list in "The Hall Handbook" which shows all the locations of concentration camps in SA. The exact location of the Pinetown Camp is in the Pinetown Museum. Queensburgh is not listed.

The Sarnia Station is a 2 minutes walk from me and was the arrival point for the wounded when being stretchered up the pathway now known as Christian Road,to the Princess Christian Hospital which became the Fairydene Hotel later on (and served good cold beers on a Sunday night) It is now know as the Fairydene old age home. The original Officer Mess still exists.

This was known at the time as Pinetown Bridge.

This was one of the better Hospitals in SA during the Boer War with only 40 deaths recorded (if memory serves) The victims being buried in the Pinetown area. 37 at St Johns in Pinetown and 3 at Mariannhill Monastery. Lt/Col Walter Waring RAMC died of dysentry here and is buried in St John's. Waring place is apparently named after the man??

Cheers
Adrian

Hi
For the past few weeks I have been unable to access the BCCD Data Base.
The home page opens, but no response from any of the tabs.
Any comments from anybody?
Henk
