    I’ve just been given your article on Uitspanfontein, De Pannen, with the box about my great grandfather Col. Eyre Crabbe. I’m very grateful to read it because though I have been researching his military career for some time this was not an engagement I knew much about at all. If you were interested in more details about his life and career I would be happy to send them.
