Springbok legend, war hero, thriving businessman - that was JJ Kitching, known to all as Kitchen Boy. Now he lies dead in his coffin in a Durban cathedral and his life is re-lived as funeral goers remember a glowing Natal childhood, the thunder of the rugby field, the joys and sorrows of family.
But at the core of the man remained, to the end, the memory of WWII and how it could reduce even the bravest of men. The funeral draws to a close, but in the heart of one of his pallbearers, Kitchen Boys's shameful secret lives on.
