Hi 90th
Compliments of the season to you.
Ive also believed that he was buried at RD,But ive come across a source that has him as being buried at the Masotsheni graveyard on the 5th February. The graveyard is the little one on the Zulu banks of the Buffalo opposite RD.
Im still checking while Im in the area.
Had an interesting day yesterday, climbed Blacks Kopie, climbed up to the Last Survivors Cave then walked the Fugitives trail. Ive taken a lot of video, the files are huge, so I need to find out how to make them small enough to post. When I get back to Cape Town I will start to play with it.

Cheers
