That said, I suppose to be quite literally Stellennbosched by mid 1900 would have been one thing, but, to be subsequently metaphorically Stellenbosched, elsewhere, could have, doubtless, so much worse.

I find it interesting that the authorities chose to give medals to those serving in the Durban Road Junction TG and east of there but drew a line there and chose not to issue medals to the thousands of men to the west of this line.
