Hi Julia,

I think it may have been South African Forces under Louis Botha. This is quite an interesting little campaign.

Indeed, you are right. There is much more about the history of Swakopmund at this site, if you can bear the website's background which nearly makes it unreadable B)

This is quite a bizarre footnote to the South West African campaign...
