The incident reported by  J. Eustace Fannin, Special Agent at Umvoti.

Does anyone have further information on this, if it's true?

WestWelll isn't that far from me. Went there today, but the Church was locked. ( Not surprising considering today's society) anyway I obtained the number of the Rev Cox. Not available as yet but will keep trying. If not looks like I'm going to church on Sunday!  agree

I've been reliably informed of the whereabouts of the D'Ombrain Medal , as I dont know the custodain personally , I wont name him .
I can say it isnt owned by a family member as far as my source was aware , although , this was a while ago it may have changed hands , but very doubtful . agree
