My Grandfather was a Mines Manager in Delmas around 1912. I have postcards of Witbank & a mines rescue team and also of my Grandfather with a member of the de beers family (so family history says). He loved SA so much that when he returned to England, he named his house Delmas. He was subsequently killed in the Holditch colliery disaster in 1936. I would love to hear from anybody who may be able to help me take my family research further
