“Park Views” - A series of short talks, on current issues, delivered by experts, living close to Parkview! Rob Milne will talk on the Greater Magaliesberg Battlefields. He 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 65 Battle and skirmish sites along the route.
When not leading Battlefield Tours, Rob works as a financial and renewable energy consultant in the Hospitality Industry. Rob is a Registered Cultural and Site Tour Guide for “The Greater Magaliesberg Battlefields Tourist Route”. We look forward to an enlightening evening of stories of the battlefields almost on our doorsteps.
