HMS Afrikander, Wedding of Don Fisher in 1958

Written by Jack Carter

I was best man for Don Fisher, an L.R.E.M. at Cape East Wireless Station and who eventually left the R.N. returned to Cape Town with his wife and is now retired there at a great location with a classic view of Table Mountain and a pseudo style English pub, ’The Royal Oak’ within spitting distance. I met up with Don and had a pint with him in 2010 at that very pub, the first time that I had met him since 1958.
