dwh999,

I've tried the museum but without more clues about it, a search has proved fruitless.

Thank you for that Steve, I thought I might have been going mad.

It seems to be more or less where I imagined, at the extent of the Zulu left horn and not far from Durnford's memorial. SE of the hill.



P.S. It looks awful to me.

There was a geographical model inside the so-called "crashed hang glider." Ken Griffith made use of it during Black as Hell...

JY et al,

Certainly the model, but not the structure, was still there on my first visit in early 1991.
