I am proud of every member who served before me, with me and will serve as a police member in future. We have one ideal: to serve and to protect.

In the former Transvaal Colony of South Africa, we had a "First Nations Canadian" (a Red Indian) who came out to fight the Boers. When he and his mates of the Canadian Mounted Rifles arrived from Canada, the Anglo Boer War was over. He and some of his friends then joined the Lord Baden Powell's South African Constabulary (SAC).

He served at Fort Edward in the SAC near the Elim Hospital. The SAC later became three separate forces - as he was in the Transvaal he became a member of the Transvaal Police. During 1913 the Transvaal Police was absorbed into the new SA Police.

Const Eagle died from blood poisoning after an encounter with a lion. We, as his former colleagues, would like to look after his grave and the graves of other policemen in the vicinity.

This area was the world of Gen Coenrad Beyers, "Breaker" Morant and Peter Hancock of the "Bushveldt Carbineers" (BVC).

For the purposes of looking after these graves, we have a trust account at Botha Rekenmeesters.

I will spearhead the donations and Charles Leach (a local historian) will see to it that the place is kept neat and tidy.

We request all colleagues' help as only about R2800 have been collected to date. Please make an investment in our history. We have to fence and clean the area to keep cattle out of the graveyard that was at the old Fort Edward Police Station. We need to do some painting etc.

Although Const Eagle was the enemy of my forebearers, the Boers, after so many years we forgive and forget. He deserves to be honoured as a hero police officer. (One day I will tell the full story of his fight with the lion.)

All contributions must be paid directly into the trust account.

Servamus - January 2020

It is just after 05:00 in a cold, windy and rainy Cape Town when the packed train pulls onto platform three.

One of the very sad consequences of every holiday season is the high number of vehicle crashes happening on our roads - not only resulting in people losing loved ones, but also leaving many drivers and passengers seriously injured or even disabled.

A lot is being said and written about vehicle fitness and road-worthiness, but what about your own fitness to drive a vehicle?

In South Africa, fatalities due to vehicle crashes are a major contributor to unnatural deaths impacting negatively on our economic development and growth.

We salute Brig Mauritz "Happy" Schutte who was born on 4 September 1951, but was called for higher duties to be with his Lord and Saviour, our God Almighty on 9 October 2019, succumbing to the illness of cancer.
There is talk of forcing pension onto members at the age of 55, with no talk of any adjustments for the Public Service Act employees who can still build pension up to the age of 65.
