So, Andrew Rattray is now running the Lodge? I'll leave it others to spot the errors in the article.

Basic errors, but plenty of them. Poor journalism. Especially for the Telegraph. Not good.

To be fair, the article was written by Sandra Howard, not a journalist from the Telegraph. I would not expect any newspaper to have the knowledge or resources to assess the factual accuracy of copy supplied by contributed/commissioned articles.

Peter,

I take your point, but I assume that Lady Howard was paid for her piece; one would have expected her to give more attention to the facts that were given to her (I'm assuming also that she is not a closet AZW fan).

Well, well, well.....all the old names are still here....and yes, guess who's back.....Yes, a few mistakes in there, to be sure. Andrew is definitely stepping into his father's shoes, and making a bloody fine job of it. too....We meet regularly on the battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift.
