I'm guessing that with rehumitism and bad knees, that ladder to the observation gallery may have proved very costly indeed!
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Many thanks for your help. I note that David Biggins in the book "Kimberley: Siege Account & Medal Roll" on page123has Chambers falling 70feet. I was wondering where this additional information came from?

Hi,
The article below (if you can call it that) was the only information that I could find with regards to the conning tower incident. For such a small article you would at least hope that they couldĀ have got the location of this event correct.
