As part of the research for the book Facts About Durban I collected details on a number of ships which were named after Durban and I posted them on the site here. A little while later I not only discovered that HMS Durban had visited Durban in 1926 but managed to buy a copy of the souvenir booklet produced by the Durban Publicity Association in honour of the occasion.
It was packed with interesting information about the Durban of those days and I posted a page with some of the details. A little while ago a reader asked if I could provide the entire contents of the booklet for some research they were doing so I scanned the whole thing and uploaded it to this site. The download link is on the visit page if anyone is interested.Share this:
