Glad you snaffled this one David. I was interested. I see he was at Bidulphsberg (various permutations of the spelling), which is where the grass or Veld fire raged through the men, killing quite a number in what can only be described as a gruesome death.

I am writing up an ABO/DTD to Commandant Muller of the Ladybrand Commando who was there as well. Very interesting.

Regards

Rory
