Chris Schoeman, author
In October 1899 the 24-year-old Winston Churchill sailed for South Africa as war correspondent for the Morning Post to report on the Boer War. This lecture covers Churchill’s travels across the Great Karoo and through Natal, his capture by the Boers, his escape to Delagoa Bay and his triumphant return to the Natal front as an officer in the SA Light Horse.
This lecture will be offered on the Microsoft Teams platform. Participants will be sent a link.
