    good afternoon : my wife's uncle was Elgon Kensington-Edwardes ... Georgina, my wife is the daughter of Elgon's sister Aimee and grand-daughter of Joe and Constance ... who lived on their farm near Fish Hoek. We have visited Runnymede etc but would be most grateful for any further information as regards the exploits of Elgon .... apart from several pre-War photographs when he was living with his parents in Kenya (he was named after Mount Elgon) our knowledge of what transpired in WW2 is unfortunately skimpy. my home email address is tuckwell@polka.co.za. Be most obliged regards patrick
