Join us for this interesting and informative talk at Jewel of the Valley. Hosted by Magalies Rocks The Cradle and Magalies Historical Society (MHS).
Rob Milne was born in Johannesburg and educated at St. David’s Marist College and the University of the Witwatersrand. From an early age, he spent most of his free time in the veld exploring South African battlefields and historic places, developing a keen interest in both South African Wars, archaeology and geology. Rob has published two editions of his book “Anecdotes of the Anglo-Boer War” both locally and Internationally and is currently completing the third edition.
New stories are continually being unearthed through Rob’s relentless ferreting around kopjies, dorps, and interviewing interesting people.
Development of a South African War battlefields tour route along the entire Magaliesberg mountain range is gaining huge momentum, and Rob is writing the “Magaliesberg Battlefields” book to cover the more than 55 Battle and skirmish sites along the route.
Rob is the Financial Advisor and Resident Historian of the Recreation Africa Group, which includes Kedar Heritage Lodge on President Kruger’s old farm, Boekenhoutfontein, near Rustenburg. Kedar houses the largest private collection of Anglo-Boer War memorabilia and artworks in the world, as well as Paul Kruger’s farmhouses and schoolroom.
