Hello,

Please help.  I have stumbled on an interesting piece of material which purports to be ABW related.  In fact it seem to point to a possible scenario of intelligence gather going back before the date of the document [01/08/1899].  The intelligence gathered seems to be regarding maps & crossing etc for troop movements.  The document is signed [Major H.Adye] with the date 01/08/1899.

As I am sure you know, the October 1899 start of the Anglo--Boer War is roughly two months later and the information gathered would require some time.  Thus it creates a dilemma of prior planning.

Much appreciate any trace info or help on Major H. Adye (that is all I have got).  Transvaal area 1899.  See Attachment

Thank you

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
