The N6 Highway - From Bloemfontein to East London - Voortrekkers, German Settlers and some forgotten heroes of WW2
Show Notes

The N6 heads straight South from Bloemfontein and skirts the Southern border of Lesotho. Little towns like Reddersburg, Smithfield, Aliwal North and Jamestown all have some history of the conflicts with the Basotho, as well as many stories of Voortrekkers and Anglo Boer War characters. A little further south and once through Queenstown you are in "Settler Country" - but these were German settlers - not British.
