Maffick Attack!

Mafeking is the name the English colonists gave to Mafikeng, a town in the dusty, sparesly populated northern Cape.
It’s name means literally ‘place of stones’.

Siege of Mafeking – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Siege of Mafeking was the most famous British action in the Second Boer War. It took place at the town of Mafeking (now Mafikeng) in South Africa over a period of 217 days, from October 1899 to May 1900, and turned Robert Baden-Powell into a national hero. The lifting of the Siege of Mafeking was a decisive victory for the British and a crushing defeat for the Boers.

Letters pressed into render and removed once set? Could be. Make an ace historical ref. print though.
