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
