Hi, I wonder if you can help me. I have just joined this site as I'm trying to find out some info. In a cupboard in my home in Northumberland, UK is a hand-made violin and on the back it has the following inscription -
Gen F v d Merwe
Krygsgevangene
PaardeBerg
27th Feb 1900

I think my great grandfather Edward Joicey, a Northumbrian Fusilier must have been out there. I'd love to return the violin to the General's family if there are any in S Africa. Can you help? My email is [email protected] Thank you Fiona Millais [Joicey]
Thank you Fiona
