Seasons Greetings. New to the Forum, rather than new to the Study. The AZW has been a particular interest of mine for at least the last 15 years. I am South Afrcan and have been to Islandwana three or four times (swam across the Buffalo at Fugitives) and have also climbed Hlobane. I spent the Holidays reading the The Missing Hours thread - and it became immediately obvious to me that I will be asking questions rather than answering them.

Just as a matter of interest (Frank maybe familiar) there is a great South African Author - Mr Peter Digby who wrote Pyramids and Poppies - the story of the 1st South African Brigade during WW1. Sadly Peter was recently placed into care and some of his memorabilia was made available for purchase

Peter visited Islandwana in 1967 and rescued artifacts including Martini Henry cartridges, belt buckles, nails and screws and a '4' of the '24th' Either this was a shoulder badge or from a forage cap. My wife had these items framed for me and are now on the wall in my study. Whereas I am privileged to own those items considering Peter's condition it is with more than a tinge of sadness. I am also not insensitivenot to the fact that a battlefield is hallowed ground and that these items should not have been removed in the first instance. 1967 was a different time I guess

Anyway, i am privileged to meet you all and thank you in advance for your forbearance when I dig deep into the treasure trove of knowledge you all have

Hi Sihayo and welcome to the forum. I do remember the 'Captain' very well. I had occasion a number of years ago to contact him for information on the Transvaal scottish. A most forth coming gentleman. Im sorry to hear of his decline and do wish him well. Could I ask that you keep in touch with any details of the Auction.

Frank

PS As you see Simon, I got the croc before he got me. Very Happy

Good Morning Frank

You can contact Mr Alan Schmidz who is the owner of the War Store in Rosebank Johannesburg. My apologies but am prevented from posting contact details - presumably until I can be shown to be of good charachter

Incidentally, and you obviously have an interest in the Transvaal Scottish - Alan has a photo Album which was compiled by Major Hunt covering his period of service with this fine Regiment. I think Alan had an asking price somewhere in the region of R 20 thousand (an indulgence I couldnt justify)

The Auction may have already occurred but it is certainly worth contacting Alan

For any other members that may perhaps be interested visit the War Store website - there is an Oliver patent water bottle for sale. I think they quote prices in Dollars US

Best Wishes

Wow, I corresponded (by post!!!) with Peter for a while years ago (actually, decades ago - how time flies). How strange his name should crop up all this time later! Does anyone else remember sending off a letter to RSA and waiting WEEKS before getting a reply? On the other hand, the mail always got there (unlike today).

So pleased to here that Peter is familiar to you both.

According to Mr Alan Schmidz, Peter had boxes of memorabalia. His collection of cap badges was nothing short of incredible (I wasnt able to appreciate the true significance or value thereof)

Also, Peter was an Anglo Boer War fundi - and his collection of medals and battlefield artifacts was I venture to suggest, second to none.

I dont know enough to do justice to Peters collection. I have absolutely no doubt though that Frank would better appreciate, and would obviously encourage his interest

Well, that wasn't the phrase I put in the English side of the translator....but hay ho......

JW: now that phrase is even beyond my Zulu translator (unless 'hovercraft' is 'i-hovercraft'......but I believe Hungarian was the chosen language.
