The Montagu Historical Society has invited Richard Tomlinson to come and talk to us about the Anglo-Boer forts around our pretty little town.
Richard has visited the forts, took pictures, compiled historic records and basically did a thorough investigation on the various forts around Montagu.
Richard is a highly respected member of the Military History Society of Port Elizabeth.
He is the Editor of the LookingBack magazine which focuses on the publication of historical articles that relate to the history of PE.
Richard also has a vast knowledge of military matters in general and is an expert on military forts.
It will be a power-point presentation with images accompanying the talk.
