Morning Les
Looked at the lists a couple of weeks back, unfortunately the exchange rate and postal costs rules me out of the two I was interested in.

Cheers

I don't understand why Gary is even hesitating on Evans and Downay. Two invaluable books and he is on the inside track for them at a fare price. scratch scratch scratch

Frank , the Evans was already sold when I asked Keith about it Salute Downay has to take a back seat , I've bought some other items ( not from Keith ) , so Keith's sale has taken a backseat for the time being , while I pay off my latest acquisitions Shocked Joker Joker You need to study mo

I picked up the Dawnay a while back - a really good read if that helps.
Gary - The Bengough is an interesting read - as you know I picked up his medals a couple of years back. Its writing style really takes you back to the period - I only wish he spent as much time writing about the wars as he does about hunting!!

The Evans looks really interesting shall add it to my wish list.

There are a couple of books there that are on my wish list - but I promised Mrs D no more expenditure until the new year!! Although maybe a South African auction might be value for money!!

On that note are there any recommended South African medal dealers?


Regards

Sergio

One thing Evans did get wrong was showing Shepstone going round the back of the mountain. There is testimony that he was seen in the camp. But a brilliant map all the same.

Welcome back Les and thanks for posting the Evans map which is excellent, it shows the topography detail very well.

Frank
I am not sure Evans map does indicate that Shepstone came from behind the mountain. All he says in the text is that Shepstone defended the west of the saddle and Durnford the east. I think that is perhaps what he is trying to show.

Frank / Steve
I didn't bother to look at the map , but as we know it's obvious Shepstone was on the West side of the mountain , as that's where he fought and died , and is consequently buried there . You need to study mo

Sorry guys my mistake. On the small scale it appeared that the arrow indicated the path of Shepstones retreat.
It wasn't my argument that Shepstone was on the West face my point was he didn't advance off the spur down the west face but came through the camp to access the point he died.

Cheers
