We all agree of bad judgement by the politicians of that time.Today we are the victims of all that till the day comes for a new war which is inevitable.I hope this time all will stand for what our fore fathers believed in!

Message: Brilliant site bringing back such memories of 5 SAI, Ladysmith (1982-1984). As the OC, Maj. Jock Harris used to tell us: "The best two years of your life you never want to do again!" Other impossible to forget characters: Sgt Maj Jakes 'Rooibaard' Oosthuizen, an incredible soldier and fine fellow loose forward in the 5SAI XV; S/Sgt Gary Meyer; Maj. John Moxham: S/Sgt vd Linde; Cpl Deysel (PTI), tough as teak. Real men from a real army.
