" Natal," says the Daily Telegraph in its issue of April 28, " may well be proud of her soldier son." A contributor sends the following Appreciation; " The South African Church might well be proud. too. in 1940 General Royston. who had been always a good neighbour to the Mariannhill Fathers on one of their Mission Stations, came to join the Church at Port Shepstone on the Natal south coast. Brave as on the battlefield. he came to Mass regularly, on feast days in a general's uniform, the latest and • least ' recruit in Christ the King's army. Together with tome little children he received Holy Communion in May, 1941, and Confirmation from Bishop Adalbcro of the Marainnhill Vicariate. He has now ' galloped ' into the presence of the King of Kings."
