I wonder how many of our children and grandchildren knew that Pops (Ken Hazell) was a star rugby player, or that Pine Pienaar, Renée’s dad, was a soldier. I came across these two old photographs today whilst looking for a birth certificate (which I didn’t find) and thought you might be interested. Pops left Bishops after Standard 8 (Grade 10) but obviously represented them at rugby at the highest level until then.
The picture of Pine, also a dead keen rugby player, shows him as a reservist during World War II and he must have been at a training camp in the Caledon district when this was taken. He is marked by the red dot.
