Hi and welcome to BE.

It's not clear, but given your user name I'm assuming you're living in the UK? If so, you might have some luck with your question posting on the UK sub forum 'The Rovers Return', here https://britishexpats.com/forum/rovers-return-111/ It's a pretty specific question, but you never know!

As a new member please make sure you've read the forum rules, they're quite simple and are designed to make everyone's time on the forum trouble free https://britishexpats.com/site-rules

I hope you enjoy your time on BE.

Butting in here - I assumed from the SA in the thread title that it's South Africa.

I’d guessed that or the state of South Australia, but that was only a guess based on it being a bit Aussie sounding.

If you're referring to Hillbrow in Jozi, we lived there briefly in the early 80s.
