Letter From South Africa

I thought you might like to read the following received recently from an ex-member of the 304th Entry.

‘I was sitting in my home in Durban South Africa and for some reason that am sure you also recognize I started to think about friends past.’

Over the years I had lost my pics of those days and so thought id look to see what was online if anything —and came across your website and of course was hugely pleased to see the list of the members of the 304th entry as had forgotten the names in full so immediately memories of those boys flooded back in.

Also surprised that some of the pics I took when in the photography club had been kept by Sean Smythe for so many years and I am in some of them also.

So was very pleased —until I started to wonder how many of these guys have passed.   To be honest I don’t want to think about that.

Thanks for creating this site. I am 71 and am sure in a few years or so we shall all be just a memory of days past.
