I just received my copy of British Archaeology, an article in it may be of interest to some members here.

See attached pic of the cover.

The Mendi story is tragic in its own right, and the way that it was conveniently forgotten by our old South African government is shameful. Its only recently that proper recognition has been accorded to the disaster and that those who lost their lives have been remembered. Sadly, its too long overdue for the families and survivors. I recommend a DVD available from Commonwealth War Graves about the Mendi, it makes for interesting viewing.
