NEWSLETTER PAGE IS NO
LONGER BEING UPDATED! THE NEWSLETTERS HAVE BEEN
Throughout the years, the inhouse
journal of CDM, now NAMDEB, has changed format somewhat. Some of
us knew it by "The Newsletter", others "The Gazette" and a few
by "The Bulletin"
Every Friday afternoon, the population of Oranjemund
would find their Newsletter in their postbox. This has changed
now, due to the fact that the Post Office is no longer the Company's
domain, but rather Nampost, who charge for the service.
Once a week throughout the 80's, my mother would
post a Newsletter to me at boarding school in Cape Town. That and
the tickey box at the hostel were my connection with "home".
I have managed to obtain a few Newsletters
from the good old days, and have scanned them. A full Newsletter
scanned is just short of 4 megs,and I only have about 500 megs
of space available for the entire site including forums, so it
would be impossible for me to scan them all. I have placed a few
which I think reflect life in those days. When you click on the
shortcut, a window will pop open with thumbnails of each page of
that edition. This page will remain here, so just close the popup
to get back here.
There is currently no zoom function
available for those of you with bad vision. I would suggest you
right click on the image, not the thumbnail, and choose "Save image
as" to your desktop, where you will be able to view the image offline
and zoom into the image. As time and space becomes available, I
will try to make "Zip" files available for download.
