Incredible day, Robin.The trouble with being a proffessional historian, is that every now and then, you come across "amateurs" who know a lot more! Jim Brown, Professor of History, Samford University, USA.

Sites where the British were encamped shown as are the routes taken by the Boers to attack. The visit ends with a summation of the war and stories told to illustrate the effects of the war on the people and on subsequent events. We visit one of the grave on the farm, and drive past one of the biggest colony’s of Cape Vultures in South Africa, before visiting a little known Boer soldier graveyard, where we leave flowers.
