The Grave of Leutnant Thilo von Trotha

Leutnant  Thilo v Trotha. Born 23-11-1877 in Wahlstadt. Died 14-06-1905 at Fish River Canyon.

Killed while negotiating peace with the Bondelswarts-Nama. He was shot from behind because it was suspected that he was using the talks to distract the Bondelswarts-Nama's attention from a raid being carried out by a German Cavalry in the valley below the Four Finger Rock in order to recover stolen livestock.
