Message: I was in the last NSM intake at 1SAI '93 and made the Defence Force a career for 13 years. In June 2004 I resigned as a Corporal and am currently living in the UK. I'm really struggling to find my feet in civvy street and I was really glad when I came across this site. If there are any ex SA Forces guys here I'd like to hear from you. Cheers!!
