Christmas in Lubero
















So there we were on Christmas Day; my merry men and I. A thousand miles from home we were with not a sign of Santa or his sleigh. But not a tear did we cry no sir we grinned and bore upon our fate with pride, as we enjoyed our UN rations with a sense of longing for those we so love.

May God bless us and you all as we, Delta Company, lie here on a hill top near Lubero and wish a Christmas very Merry to all of you in South Africa. Bring us home to you safely by prayer in a jet plane in half a dozen months or so and remember that until then our common fate keeps us together and God watches over his company.

Hope you and your men are having a good one, Werner. Sounds like those rations are quite tasty.

I have followed your blog for more than a year: Just to say that I´m impressed with your short stories and photos which give me good insight into a corner of Africa I´d never had otherwise.

A good Christmas to all of you!
