Meet John Brereton Summers, a Surrey stalwart and son of an ex Mayor of Reigate. Summers has an interesting story to tell which will be revealed in the fullness of time. I can divulge that he was the Honorary Secretary of the London Surrey Club for almost half of his life.

Summers served with a little known unit (any info anyone has would be most appreciated) - Swanson's Volunteer Corps. Who Swanson was is still a mystery.

More later once my fellow in the Zimbabwe Archives has had time to do a bit of digging.

Good gracious me Rory, now that really is very nice indeed, I really can't remember the last time I actually saw one of those, moreover, with a little change from six thousand Rand, I'd say that someone has made a mistake and it certainly was not you!

Any thoughts as to why it was named in that way?
