About Pieter Daniel de Villiers, a3b5c4d5e1f1

Anglo Boere Oorlog Latere Kommandant -------------------- My grandfather (Jacob de Villiers Dorey) told me many stories of his grandfather Pieter Daniel de Villiers. The one I remember most vividly is that, while on a hunt, he bet his fellow hunters that he would pull a hair from the back of a live rhino. He approached the rhino very cautiously from the down-wind direction, plucked a hair from the rhino's back, and snuck away safely, again down-wind. How's that for bravery? Or just a matter of more guts than brains?
