Message: 7 SAI for basics in July 86, then on to JL's at Heidleberg till July 87. Finished JL's then it was an instructor in Alpha Squadron for the remainder. Days were full of memories. Good friendships were made. We all made a difference. We can hold our heads high. Lets remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. You will be not forgotten. SADF was an institution, a force to be proud of. To all stand tall.

Message: 2 SAI Walvisbay. 87-88 intake. 81 mm mortars. Did basics in Walvis. Riots in Queenstown. Then off to the border and spent most of the time in Ruacana and Calueque. One thing I will never forget is the MIGs dropping bombs all around us at Calueque. Lets not forget those 12 Soldiers that died that day and all the soldiers that died throughout the war. Anybody or buddies out there who remember this, give me a shout.
