I have been transferred to Cape Town and I have bought a property in Simon's Town. The new avatar is the view from my veranda of the Simon's Town Naval Base.
I currently run the entire coastal area of SA which is madness and it just makes more sense to be based in the Cape.
Now I can spend more time in the Cape Archives, and start enjoying the medal meetings in the Castle again. All good fun.
Part time researcher of the Cape Police and C.P.G Regiment.
Yes, I have been acquiring medals just not QSA's, been concentrating on medals of later decades. However I like battles where the artillery had a hand in turning the battle and Modder River was one of those. Been after a 62nd for awhile, missed a few as I do not purchase from overseas only locally. Could not resist this one when it came up near where I live. I have a Colenso QSA entitled to the same medal combo BUT sadly I only have the QSA.
If all goes well I too will also be relocating to the fair Cape within a few years. Adrian and I will be virtually neighbours living only a few km's apart.
