Another super medal Brett.

I was read the story of Wolhuter as a young boy and it gave me nightmares!

(Wolhuter was attacked by a lion and was being dragged by the shoulder when he managed to get his knife and killed the lion. He then climbed a tree and spent night there.)

Hello Meurig, Bill Woolmores book entitled Steinaeckers Horse is the bible for this outfit. Other on line articles on SH can be seen at the SAMilitary History site. I contact relatives of members of SH also pick up bits and pieces from other books and old newspaper articles. I also correspond with folk in Swaziland who have similar historical interests. Cheers, Bill Goldsworthy

It may not be common knowledge that Steinaecker's Horse camp sites in the Kruger National Park have been the subject of controlled excavations over a number of years. A link is given below.

Brett, Let me have your postal address and I will send you my booklet 'Letters from Swaziland'. Not a lot on Natal but info on Ingwavuma and Van Oordt who was the republics representative on the Southern Lebombos. I have been in contact with Dr Anton von vollenhoven and his kruger park researches. Kaapschehoop is also having a revival. Check out on line 'The Lowvelder-Kaapsehoop. The fort used by the various units including SH has ben rediscovered. Cheers, Bill G.

I have not followed up the links picked up from Google, so I have no record of publications. The SABC's Afrikaans radio station has carried several interviews with Dr von Vollenhoven and he is evidently very committed to following the trail of SH through excavation of their camp sites.

Bill
Thank you for your kind offer. I will send you my postal address by pm.

Regards
Brett
