Letter from his daughter Pat, February 2000
During the First World War he first of all served in the South West Campaign and later was sent to England for officer training. This is how he met my mother. Funnily enough, Lepper is also a German family name from the Hamburg area. They married after the aristice and Mum came out to South Africa on a troop ship, settling in Durban.
