Message: Wow, just stumbled on this fantastic site.
Basic’s at 7SAI Bourke’s Luck (Graskop) January 1974, straight from school – what a contrast. Thereafter moved to 3SAI in Potchefstroom. Specialised in mortars, but ended up section leader of standard infantry section. Did 2 border stints. First was 3 months on Mozambique border, what a b**** patrolling in the Kruger Park. Second was 5 months on Angolan border along the Kunene River mostly, based at the satellite Sodalite Camp west of Swartbooisdrift. Thankfully, no contact during my border stints, praises to those who did! Total of 18 months.

Message: Hi all, well, it's 30 years since I was in the SADF- time flies!! I spent my last 17 months odd with 8SAI, after 1 Para Bn basics.. Okatope for 7 + 5 mnths, Soweto then NW Transavaal out of Dendron. Millions of memories. Many stories to tell the grandkids. Friends and fellow troops 'lost'. The end result- our South Africa is changed..a pity that what we fought for is now in the past. Well, it's 2015... God bless us all. Nick
