Just Nuisance StatueFree: All time

Just Nuisance was the only dog ever to be officially enlisted in the Royal Navy. He was a Great Dane who between 1939 and 1944 served at the Royal Navy shore establishment in Simon’s Town. He died in 1944 at the age of seven years and was buried with full military honours. Just Nuisance never went to sea but fulfilled a number of roles ashore. Today, he’s immortalized by artist Jean Doyle as a statue that overlooks the marina in Jubilee Square in Simon’s Town. On every second Saturday of the month from 9:30am – 2:30pm, also find a craft market at the square. Simons Town is about 45 km south of Cape Town.
