A blog covering life and happenings in Cape Town

Turtle Essays brings people together.

I have been writing articles about Cape Town for more than two years now and every now and again I get an email from someone who has read one of my articles.

Just this week I have been contacted by someone who walked the streets of Kommetjie where I grew up before I was born.

It appears that he was part of a contingent of Royal navy people who were stationed at Kommetjie's Slangkop Radio during the war years , 1946 -1950.

It's great hearing from these people especially as my Mom who is still alive is trying to contact some of the friends that she made then.

If you know anyone who was stationed in Kommetjie around that time please contact me at
