Can anyone give me a location for Fort Genesa, Bechuanaland, please? It is part of an inscription in an old photo album held in the family.
Tylden, in his introduction, refers to a war being conducted in Bechuanaland during 1897. 1600 men under Colonial Dalgety of the CMR went up there. His force included some members of the Cape Police - I guess my husband's grandfather was one of them because the rest of the inscription is:
C F Lund
Cape Police D1 (which I imagine stands for District 1).
Anything about Fort Genesa and this particular confict would be very welcome.
