By the way; - it is still a mystery to me why in every old British and Portuguese map the settlement of Mitomoni
was always shown on the Portuguese side of the border.
Uncle Ludwig was no better. One could almost suspect continued copy & paste in the pre-computer era. :lol:

We should forgive him. (- :wink: -)
Uncle Ludwig was no longer there, when the `Schutztruppe´ passed Mitomoni on the way back,
since he was seriously wounded (Headshot!) during the Battle of Lioma on August 31th, 1918.
