About Philip Bellwood Bowes, SV/PROG

Arrived in Cape Town, South Africa on the Kinfauns Castle Steamer 18 November 1880.

From his diary: "Thursday, Nov 18th. Anchored in Table Bay at 8.30am after a fine run of 19 days 20 hours from Dartmouth. Paid 2/- to go on shore (!) as I had to see some friends early in the day. Spent most of that day in looking about Cape Town. The proverbial 'table cloth' covered Table Mountain this morning. I am certainly favourably impressed with Cape Town. This new war has made things look up, and Burghers who have been called to the front are giving almost any price for substitutes." [This was a reference to the impending First Boer War, 16 December 1880 to 23 March 1881]
