Subject: [ZA-IB] NMC in Egypt WW2
Date: Mon, 03 Dec 2007 17:14:06 +0200
I believe the NMC served with distinction in Egypt during WW2, Job
Masego comes to mind immediately, sinking a "fully laden enemy
steamer" in Tobruk harbour.
There is a stunning war cemetery at Palmietkuil just outside Springs
where members of the NMC are buried, and a number are also buried
in Newclare cemetery in Johannesburg. Its just a pity that the
authorities never let these soldiers reach their full potential.
>Just for interest. I worked in the NMC Pay Corps at Welgedacht. I am

>Are there indications of how they died? I have also seen some names

>pictures of their graves. Just a"we will remember them" This is a
>fantastic project. Many thanks.
