Welcome OntheWire. I too am new here but have found the forum has quite the variety of topics. I am also finding a very diverse crew that seems to play well with others, unlike some other forums.

Howzit chaps!

I hail from South Africa.

I am a history enthusiast. I read broadly but specialise somewhat on Boer history. I decided to join you fine gentlemen to learn as much as I can and to contribute where I can.

Thanks for having me

Good for you mate, you know Churchill fought in the Boer War as a young officer and said he thought it was "very sporting of the Boers to take on the might of the British Empire"..

@Spike - He was a young war reporter (a journalist). He was, however, not shy for action. When the armored train he was on was attacked and derailed near Frere (Natal) he organised the effort to defend it and under fire directed the effort to get one engine going to escape. He has captured (by who he thought was General Botha) and was send to prison in a school building in Pretoria from where he escaped a day before the Boers were going to release him anyway (he did not know that). He then walked all the way to Lourenco Marques (modern day Maputo, Mozambique). There are many other stories of his exploits in South Africa. He is the most interesting Englishmen I have ever had the pleasure to read about.

Edit: His capture site is a small monument not far from where I live. It's right next to the tar road. After 1994 there has been no government upkeep so people like myself take care of it. About 4 years ago somebody put a fence around it so government workers wont dig it up during road construction.
