You are correct, Frank. The German boot was smaller than the British one, but, as the Herero's can attest, it had a much harder stamp.

I cannot help but feel, we should, for the record, examine the stamp, of the (jack :sick: ) boot!

The Herero

Good morning David,
Quite extraordinary, I wonder who he was and what happened to him, perhaps Adrian would be interested in this man too.

David,
Your timing with this is quite also extraordinary as Brett mentioned a similar event to me only the other day, he also tells me that Gourton was a hamlet on the Upper Tugela.
