AB Just Nuisance RN
An exceptionally intelligent and warm dog, Just Nuisance, was in 1939 enlisted into the British Navy, (which then owned the Simon's Town enclave). This tall Great Dane, now known as Able Seaman, was a regular traveler on the train between Simon's Town and Cape Town and would often escort inebriated sailors back to their ship. Apparently the Great Dane was not averse to the odd pint himself. Every April 1 (both the anniversary of Just Nuisance's birth and death) is marked by a street parade in Simon's Town to commemorate this extraordinary animal. In Jubilee Square a bronze statue of the famous canine pays tribute to him.
If you don't know the story of Just Nuisance,then here it is in brief: Just Nuisance was a dog. You might be wondering why they've got a whole hill and memorial just for a dog. Well, JN was a very special dog. He was a sailor's dog. For example,he would always make sure that the sailors were out of trouble (thus getting his name!) In fact, they even made him a real sailor! But, on one very sad day, after being extremely ill for weeks, JN died. So know that you know the story, I can tell you about the place. It is a sad but peaceful place, and the atmosphere fits perfectly to the surroundings. I suggest that you go there.
