I'm hoping the the spelling/pronunciation is correct, as my grand-mother Beryl (nee Thomas) spoke of dowgs and frowgs, when she meant dogs and frogs. He also spoke about playing cricket against the English at the barracks. Living close to, "is it Jacob's Ladder?" they were within walking distance. It is just a couple of months before we visit St Helena and we would just love to see/visit of the places that he used to mention. Any info would be well received. Regards, Douglas E Yon
