Found in 4 Collections and/or Records:
190 x 141 mm. Showing General Botha standing on the steps of the Windhoek Town Hall to announce the commencement of a state of Martial Law. Behind him stands a group of army officers, with military and civilian personnel in the foreground. The civilian standing alone at the bottom of the steps to the right is probably the Burgermaster of Windhoek.
165 x 147 mm. Showing Botha and two other officers reading a document in the open air. A photograph probably taken at Karibib on the 13th May rather than May 12 as the caption would suggest. Botha returned to Karibib after the proclamation of Martial Law and the request for peace negotiations from the German Governor-General, Dr. Theodor Seitz arrived on the 13th.
