Those photos I promised such a long time ago and never got to scanning the slides.................. :redface:

The painted dogs at Samevloeiing

Police camels used to do patrols also at Samevloeiing

As far as I could gather from the other slides in the box it must have been somewhere in 1970.

I wanted to give someone else a chance, but seeing that no other guesses have come up,
I'll post my next one (I'll get it at some point, picnic. :twisted: )

wow....I don't know!!!
I found that the big Camel Thorn Tree was used by the Germans as a look-out post. They nailed horseshoes to the tree to serve as a ladder. The tree was burnt down in a large veldfire in 1976.

I'd hazard a guess at "Der Ausguckbaum" which, correct if I'm wrong, translates as "look-out tree". Completely made up on the spot, but none of my books mention it! Fantastic Q!

Johannes Le Riche and Gert Jannewarie both died of the same causes in 1934, something that is common in KTP. What was it?
