I've been told a story, which I have been unable to confirm, that, at the beginning of the Angolan civil war, following their chaotic independence from Portugal in 1975, a group of Benguela residents drove in a makeshift convoy to Namibia, then Southwest Africa, to save their lives.They took with them only what they could carry in the cars, including their IWCs which they used as currency to finance their return to Portugal, and also their new life in South Africa, or Portugal.This Ingenieur may be one of them.
