Just Nuisance was a likable resident in Simons Town and a statue of him stands in Jubilee square in his memory. After birth he was sold to a man who ran the United Services Institute in Simons Town. Most of his customers were Royal Navy sailors and all dog lovers. Just Nuisance would follow his sailor buddies around the base and dockyard and even on board to the gang plank of HMS Neptune, which was his favourite spot.

After the railway authorities complained about the dog travelling on the train with the seamen when they were on shore leave, the seamen decided to promote Just Nuisance and officially make him an ‘Ordinary Seaman’ – paperwork was signed by his paw. He was then entitled by navy law to all the same benefits as the sailors, including free train travel. Sadly after a car accident, Just Nuisance got Thrombosis which slowly paralyzed him.

It was decided to put him down so that he did not suffer. He was a huge part of many of the sailor’s lives and is memory will always live on. Visit his statue, learn more about him and see the local museums for more stories and collections of his possessions.
