This engraved rock can be found at a large British logistical camp that appears to be a horse replenishment station given the large amounts on nails and horse shoes uncovered. Located between Machadodorp and Lydenburg in the Bambi area.

Very interesting, can you provide a transcript - especially of the names - I can see "Johnson" and "Butterworth"?

Is it possible to show a map with the location of the camp?

Thanks
