Message: Ja ek was nou wel nie op die grens nie, maar het baie respekt vir daai ouens. 2 van my broers was ook daar en het terug gekom, een het nou wel amper sy voet verloor. die belangrikste is dat al twee veilig terug was. My hart gaan uit na die famielies wat pa's, broers, oom's, oupa's en huiweliks maat verloor het en soos dit lyk was dit alles verniet.

Message: Ek wil net dankie se aan almal wat hulle insette hier gesit het. My pa het ook op die grens geveg en gelukkig vir my dit oorleef. Hy mag dalk nie in die wereld se oŽ n held wees nie, maar hy is myne. My oupa was n kruis gevangene in die WWii en hy het aan kanker sy lewe verloor. Ek voel die soldate wat die oorlog oorleef het moet vir n slag ook erkening kry... want hulle het ook hulle lewe geoffer... en baie het jare van hulle lewe verloor. Aan almal wat op die grens geveg het Dankie.... en die van julle wat dit oorleef het.... Julle is my Hero's!

Message: Ek het basies in Walvisbaai gedoen Januarie - Maart 1977, is na Berede Sentrum tot September 1977 Peleton 7, Grens toe en afgedeelde diens in SWA Spesialiste eenheid. Saam met infanterie in Okonkolo, Ombulanto, Ogongo, Meinheni tot Desember 1978. Ek glo mens sal wonderlike stories hier kan lees. Fotos het ek ongelukkig nie a.g.v. rigiede sekeriteit deur die S.A.W. destyds toe daar nog dissipline was.

Message: Johan Pieter Dunde Verster (an ex-matric friend, 1984, High School Oudtshoorn + Infantry School mate, 1985) allegedly stole a navy Namacura boat on 31 January 1986 from the naval base in Port Elizabeth. He and the boat were never found. Can any body perhaps give me more detail? Thanks

Message: Jammer om weer negatief te wees. Maar party dae dink n mens miskien is ons makkers wat nie meer met ons is nie beter af as ons. Hulle het ten minste as helde afgesluit - as wat sal ons oorblewendes onthou word, maar soos my lieflike vroutjie se woorde is, daar is darm nog n paar van ons oor om ons pienk pootjies van Savanna, Turning Wheel , Protea en menigde ander waarhede te vertel ! Vasbyt min dae ...
