I have posted Udo Richard Averweg’s article on the relief of The Old Fort which had been besieged by Boers.

Saturday 24th June 2017 marked the 175th anniversary of the arrival of the schooner Conch to the Bay of Natal (now known as Durban harbour). The ship’s arrival from Algoa Bay (now known as Port Elizabeth) on 24th June 1842, was instrumental in raising the month-long siege of the British garrison at Fort Port Natal (now known as The Old Fort, Durban).
