Subject: [ZA-EC] Translation from Dutch please.
Although I understand the general gist of the following sentence in Dutch, I
would appreciate it if an expert in the language could provide me with an
accurate translation (this is the heading of an archived file of the State
Secretary of the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek, dating from 1877 ):-
"A. AYLWARD COMMANDANT, LIJDENBURG. LASTGEVING AAN KAPTEIN GUNN OM 72
GEWAPENDE MANSCHKAPPEN DIE DIENSKAMP VERLATEN HEBBEN, TE AGTERVOLGEN EN HEN
NAAR HET KAMP TE DOEN TERUGKEEREN ETC."
