Today is the anniversary of the Cyclone Domoina making landfall in Mozambique in 1983 and the start of the death and destruction that reached much further south. A possible repeat of this event was what recently kept Barry glued to the weather maps.

A wonderful week and after remembering "this is Africa" we managed to achieve most of what we were asked to do - life long memories for my chaps and good to be back amongst friends from both sides and from many years - Frank would you mind if I post a copy of your line up to Ian Knight's Tour group with acknowledgments - our 7000 plus images are being sorted and will be on our face book page when we get round to it - thanks to all my fellow travellers on this one and as always John good to have your full support - atb Tim

A little reminder of the trip.  Some of my gifts from King Zwelithini.

The greatest gift for me was the friendship of the Zulu people from the highest to the lowest in the land.

Tim,

I’ll swap you a shield for your “leopard skin” collar!

Looking forward to the rematch later in the year!

Be my guest, just a reminder its now 'Iron Knight'.
John
I notice the spear is missing, did 'she who must be obeyed' stick it some where? I did notice she was stroking your back, possibly looking for a tender spot?
I would agreed though, a memorable journey, not least meeting up with so many forum friends.

Frank,

No we were dancing to the strains of “Waltzing Matilda” I believe.

She beat a hasty retreat when “my sister” gave her a right Royal tongue-lashing.

Your 'sister' is a wonderful lady, truly an honour to meet her. Thank you for that John.

It was excellent to finally catch up , and what a time we had , the Maltese Falcon and I flew in about 3 1/2 hrs ago .
Thanks to JY for getting us into the VIP Tent to meet the Kings Brother , Steve an I won't forget that in a hurry . Also a special mention again JY for belting out the majestical strains of Waltzing Matilda in the 40 deg heat ! .

Sorry John the collar is something a bit special isn't it - and a major surprise in a week full of them! The images already out there and the memories made - did you ever see a redcoat walking down Ulundi High Road! A truly humbling experience that will leave lasting imprints on my chaps for the rest of their lives - this was my 6th trip there and each one has a different set of experiences - lets hope I can last till the 7th - and as you say John looking forward to the rematch later this year - atb Tim

Hell she must have been way over weight, thats not a small book. `My only mistake was not taking my old Big Silver Book for Ian to sign. Or should that read Iron, he was still laughing about that the day I left.
