Thank you Admin,

I've been lurking in the backround and finally decided join this excellent discussion group. I've learned a tremendous amount, fascinating stuff!

I won't be able to contribute much; my interest in the AZW lies in the fact that my father was raised in a small mining village on Hlobane mountain and I was raised in the small village called Vaalbank approx. 2km south of Hlobane mountain. Both myself and my father spent our youth exploring the southern slopes of Hlobane mountain and occasionally the plateau of the mountain.

My parents still live in the small village and I visit often. In fact I visited the grave site of Campbell and Lloyd just the other day. I did not have my camera with me to record the senseless vandalism of the site.

I have been searching for a while now, but have been unable to find the cave from where Campbell was shot. I intend to try again on my next visit.

Best wishes for the festive season,
J.J.

Plenty of memories there then. JJ. Do you remember seeing any cartridges laying around or even picking them up?

Thanks all,

Impi, I have not seen any cartridges, but I did hear stories when I was a kid about others in the area picking up the odd one.

Cheers,
J.J.
