One thought on “portuguese christian warriors under the command of vasco da gama in the shores of the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa in 1497.

  1. I’ve always been stirred by Boy’s Own adventure illustrations, and all the more so when they depict a historical event with which I’m already familar. This illustration is no exception. Does it depict Da Gama’s landing at St Helena Bay or at Mossel Bay, during his epic voyage around the Cape in 1497? Could you please tell me the name of the artist the work’s full title, as I would love to use it on my public Facebook page. Please see http://www.facebook.com/knotofstone
