Those with a nodding acquaintance with Afrikaans will know what a "lusmakertjie" is - a "foretaste" of things to come.

The photo below is of a ""General" in the Ossewabrandwag - the extreme right wing group who were vehemently (and violently) opposed to South Africa coming out on the British side in WWII.

Wilhelm Johannes Henoch Marsh was a descendant of 1820 settlers who lived in the Paarl area of the Cape. He joined the Smithfield Commando in the ABW and was taken POW (being a Cape Rebel he assumed a different name when captured)

There's much more to tell about this austere looking gent sporting an Ossewabrandwag armband along with his ABO medal.
