It always pays to go back over things in case you see something that earlier passed you by. For instance, a little of the information that I mentioned in the previous post was buried* in an email I got last year and that I’ve only just noticed the full impact of:
“I have been speaking to my mother and she recalls my father mentioning his father being in Pretoria at a very old age”.
Because I have no idea of PJR’s death (for it is he), and the last known ‘sighting’ was before the war, this simple statement has ruled out, potentially, 40 years of possibly death dates. It is always a good idea to pay attention!
(*OK, not “buried” but mentioned briefly in a message about something else)
