In WO126 are a few miscellaneous TG attestation papers including one containing 9 names to a Nussel Bay unit.



I thought this might be a mistake for Mossel Bay but the page containing the signatures is clearly marked as Nussel Bay.



I cannot find any mention of Nussel Bay. Anyone know its location?

No idea, even Google draws a blank.

Are the names on any other unit list?

I think this is a corruption of Mossel Bay. I have never heard of Nussel Bay and no such place exists geographically in SA

I would agree that this should be Mossel Bay TG.

The names on the roll are very difficult to read:



J M Bayman
Wal Rinuts
Salmon Rensburh
L M Pienaar - got substitute C Swart at last moment
P Marx
G S Harder
Bmarr
E McGuiness
Thos Muller for 14 days

Sworn before me, P A Lomorens / Louvrens

Interestingly, the oath 'so help me god' has been crossed out.

It is a bit of a long shot but there is a E McGuiness in W Sqn CCF. Several Marx but no solely 'P'. S S Marx of W Sqn CCF also served Mossel Bay DMT.

There is a J Bayman and a Petrus Marks on the Mossel Bay TG roll.
