Did you work in South Africa at any time related to this pensions or is this only a pension from when you worked overseas?

the pensions are 1] astate pension from UK AND 2] a workforce/SIPP - a self invested private pension.
Both of these pensions are from work which was done solely overseas and were funded by monies generated entirely from this overseas work
