Interlude in Durban
In March 1917, B Company disembarked from their troopship at Durban, and Dad spent several weeks there before continuing on to India in April. During his time at Durban he met a young lady called Vera, and they became friends. Vera was married, with a young child. Her husband was away working in a diamond mine. Dad met Vera's family and they spent a lot of time together.
