Nelson was to spend little time here in the ensuing years, as his role in the struggle became all consuming and he was forced underground in 1961, living life on the run until his arrest and imprisonment in 1962.

          ... Atos (what a trooper) up to the gunnels and headed down to Magaliesburg for a spot of camping. Somehow the Atos managed to get myself, Rob, Josie (NZ) and Cassie (another Monash kid!!) - plus all our gear - up and down the hills to Bosparadys in one piece. We arrived first, cracked a beer and watched the storm roll in while we attempted to start the braai, and happily Patty (one of the Wits medical students) and his mates rocked up with tents, more beer and some mad braai skills at about ...

For some reason I felt very uncomfortable, for I could tell some of the older kids ...
