On holiday in Strand and visiting with friends, Moth Dave decided on the spur of the moment to pop in at our Shellhole. Unbeknown to this current serving Old Bill of Combined Ops Shellhole in Bulawayo, the crowd that he was about to meet, recently described by Old Bill of the Order Moth Norman Edwards in a letter to Old Bill Chantèl, as a “special bunch of blokes,” relish, thrive and reign supreme on occasions such as these!
He arrived at 17H00 with every intention to have ONE beer and then leave quietly; needless to say, Moths Johann Fourie, Rob Harding, Philip McLachlan, Brian Tribelhorn (nom-de-guerre: Troublehorn), Recruit Frikkie Brits and Friends of the Shellhole Brian Simmonds and Wilf Pratt kept the poor man and his friends occupied until 22H00.
Earlier visitors included Moths Malcolm Bouwer, Bob Fisher, George Mann, Brian Porter and soon to be Friend of the Shellhole John Froneman. Not to be outdone, Moth Dave entertained all those present with stories about Zimbabwe and Mothdom within the Command. A most enjoyable evening was had by all! “In true brotherhood, it is the Spirit that counts” Moth ‘O’.
The photographers, Moths Rob Harding and Brian Tribelhorn used various techniques to produce these pictures! Moth Harding illustrated how one can take a picture of both you holding the camera and the group, whilst Moth Tribelhorn set the timer on his phone to produce these two pictures. Due to his size and inability to move around swiftly, he had to be cropped out of the above picture and a closer seat was allocated for the picture below.
