Paardeberg Day 2018

All the best to the Royals on the 118th anniversary of the battle of Paardeberg, Canada's first overseas battle. The battle was also our first overseas victory and the turning point of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War.

From the Other English Speaking Regiment....
The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools. ...
