Rob.

Many thanks. I am finding this a fascinating thread. It is certainly throwing up more questions than answers. Always something new to learn.

Kind regards, Malcolm.

The Fusiliers Monument on Pieter’s Hill has fallen into disrepair somewhat, the top third is now gone. Presumably a lightning strike, perhaps because the copper lightning conductor was stolen for its scrap value? It's the sort of project if a few £100 were raised by interested people in the UK it could be put right, as the expertise to do so is available locally - but South Africa has other priorities right now...

The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
