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 bitch 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.


This website about the South African Defence Force is a tribute to all who served in the SADF, and a reminder to those who have long since forgotten ...
