Message: 78499217 BG/BT. Het my diensplig begin in Jan 1980 4SAI. Ek was Infantrie skool toe. Foxtrot peleton 8. Ek het my enkel beskadig met fasbyt en is terug na 4 SAI, B kompanie peleton 1. Na al die opleiding is oorgeplaas na SAAF, 14 dae voor my grens trip. Baie ongelukkig gewees daaroor. Was by 28 eskader LMB Waterkloof. Grensdiens gedoen vir 6 maande op LMB Ondangwa van Jan 1981 tot Jun 1981. Beste tyd in die army ooit. Was een van die ongelukkiges wie se nommer nooit weggeraak het nie en al my kampe gedoen, 7 jaar lank. Sal enige fotos van daardie tyd waardeer. Myne het alles weggeraak.

Message: Diensplig gedoen vanaf 1981 tot 1983. Het ingeklaar by TDK toe oorgeplaas 11 kommando toe; van daar af na 8 SAI en toe na 5SAI waarvan ek grensdiens verrrig het by Eenhana; Elundu; Okolongo en Onjiva, Het daai bosse plat geloop op patrollie. Het in 2012 weer by die kampe in Eenhana en Elundu gaan draai; die PB's woon nog steeds in hulle selfgeboude hutte met takkrale soos 30 jaar gelede. Wonder altyd wat het geword van die manne wat saam my daai tyd gesweet het in die bos.
