Morning List

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.
