By John Young
Does anyone have any evidence of the actual spelling of the commander of the Edendale Troop?

I have checked the N.A.S.A. site but with no avail. 'The Natal Mercury' of 22nd January 1929, states that he was a former employee and spells it without the 'e' - does anyone have proof to the contrary?

The original typescript for the Natal Mercury article has it written and spelt throughout with e (in the KCAL).
