Thanks Andy , I went there last year but didn't notice it , probably because the grass was quite high in spots ! . Have listed Ft Evelyn for another visit in May or June next year ! .

Gary,

That’s surprising as ‘The Major’ queried Drum-Major Brown with me in the past.

Hi JY
I contacted the ' Major ' about us going to find the grave of Drm Maj Brown , he said he's aware there's a grave there , but couldn't remember the name , so Yes , we are going again in May or June . Ft Evelyn is on the main Rd so it's easy to get to .
Cheers JY
90th Salute Very Happy

Cancel May or June and take The Major’s 140th jaunt...

He has put a lot of effort into it.

Hi JY
Unfortunately can't be done , going with I.K in Jan for his 140th. I'm hoping I can get back there and the earliest will be in May / June , but that's no certainty as yet . Yes.. I believe he's done and doing plenty of work , it's Hlobane & Kambula for you lot ?. It will be an excellent Patrol , no doubt about it .

As a matter of interest Gary, when you were in the Melmoth area did you get to see the graves of Scott Douglas and Cpl Cotter at Kwa Magwasi ?
