From: "Cobus Venter"

To: "[Army Talk]"

Subject: Seasons Greetings

Date: Sat, 21 Dec 1996 17:35:57 -0000

Seasons greetings to all of those at Army-talk

Especially to: Dave Berry, Joao Bacar,Ian Suttil,Charlie Small,Ray Richards & Homera De Nobriega, I still remember Dec 77, Christmas in Mtoko, and us singing:

 "Jingle Bells,
  Mortar shells,
  Zanlas' in the grass,
  You can take your  Merry Christmas, 
  and stick it up your A#%&$"

I still miss you, and some days I wish that I was on the journey with you which you started so long ago at different times, and we were still that happy band of brothers

Sleep well my Friends, and may God truly bless Africa

Dedication by Eugene Griesel
on 2001-05-30 14:00:14

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
They mingle not with laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)

I was a mortarist with the 2nd SAI.We were based at Calueqe for a few weeks.We looked up at the sky's on that day the 27th june 1988 and waved at the mig 27's that flew over ,thinking they were our own planes doing a patrol.I immediatly stopped waving when i saw a white bomb with a parachute behind it falling about 200 to 300 metres away.We were still able to jump into our bunkers, but those 12 men that died in the buffel did'nt stand a chance. I did'nt know any of those men, but It was a sad day for me , one i still cannot forget even after 15 years...

I am trying to get information on my great grandfather EDWARD "TRICKETT" THOROUGHGOOD who fought with S.A. Light Horse Regimental No. 8484 during the conflicts in Africa some time between 1899 and 1902. He was enlisted for 1 year and 284 days according to the records we have in regard to his further service during WWI. Any information would be appreciated.

In May of 1973 at about 14.00hrs we left our Main Camp to do a routine 7 day patrol in the Caprivi. We were a whole section on the back of a Bedford truck.we were driving on a sand road. Jeffrey Holm was sitting at the back tail end of the Bedford next to me and about 10km out of the Camp we hit a sand hump and the Bedfords tail end jumped in the air flinging us all in the air but Jeff flew off. he had his R1 rifle in his hands and fell on the road forward hitting his head on the ground and did a back sumersauld hitting his head at the back he was still holding his rifle.and then droped it i jumped off and ran towards him he was sitting up and i saw blood coming out his ears nose and eyes i then grabed him held him in my arms and he wanted to tell me something but he then vommited blood.he died in my arms.some of the other Parabats tried to give him mouth to mouth but he was already dead.

I first met Johan Calitz in 1979 at the start of our second fase training in Potchefstroom. He slept in the bunk next to me for a few weeks before i was sent to Loopspruit  SAMS base for my medical training. On my return from Loopspruit i was posted to B company as an HQ Medic.
During 1979/80 we were sent to the Operation area 3 times. First to Ruacanna (51 BN) and then to Ombalantu (52 BN) where the sick bay was a very busy place.
We tended numerous PB casualties and one of our own, Rfn Scholts who was mortally wounded during an attack on the local waterworks which his platoon was guarding. That night is burned into my memory. Dispite our efforts to save hime he died 2 days later.
Later in 1980 we returned to the Ops area and where based at Okatope (53 BN).  I was pleased to note that Okatope was far from the Chopline and anticipated an easier time for the Company after the events at Ombalantu.
My hopes where shattered when it became evident that the area was a hotbed of enemy activity. During this tour we lost Rfn Johan Calitz in an ambush. I was in base at Okatope when the news broke that one of our platoons had been involved in a contact, and that there where casualties.
We stood ready to receive the wounded but due to the seriousness of johans injuries he was casevaced by chopper strait from the ambush site. Johan died on the casavac chopper on the way to hospital. 
In the resultant followup operations, most of the enemy group where killed.
Some of them by our company.

Howard attended King Edward VII high school in Houghton. I knew him as a teenager, and he lived 1 bock away from my home in Highlands North. I know to this day his family miss him sorely and appreciate his sacrifice. I never knew of his untimely death until 25 years later when trying to contact the family. Rest in Peace Howard.

Ek haal graag Jan.F.Cilliers aan. Ek hou van n man wat sy man kan staan.ek hou van n arm wat n slag kan slaan,n oog wat nie wyk.wat n bars kan kyk en n wil wat so vas soos n klipsteen staan. So het ek Flip geken,en trots om te kan se hy was my broer.Hy was n jaar ouer as ek en baie ingemeen gehad daarom kan ek getuig van die sy voortreflike eienskap.Voorwaar n ware leier,en altyd bereid om ander te hulp te wees.Sy heengaan op 14 Maart 1980 het n groot leemte gelaat in ons familie en daarmee groot hartseer tot vandag nog,maar dat goeie herinnering van hom sal voort leef. Flip ek salueer jou nog altyd.

Anton Broodryk was my korporaal gedurende ons 6 maande op die Grens. Ons het meeste van die tyd n paar km oos(?) van Pereira de Eca gel^e sodat ons, as valskermsoldate, naby aan die lughawe kon wees. Gedurende hierdie tyd het ons gereeld patrollies wyd rondom ons tydlike basis gedoen. Teen die einde van 1975 het ons gereeld met n klein groepie SWAPO vryheidsvegters gebots. Een van ons Hippos het op n dag oor een van hulle landmyne gery en is verwoes. Ek kan nie onthou of iemand BAIE seer gekry het nie. n Paar dae voor of na daardie voorval het ons een van die groep gevange geneem. Hy is baie goed behandel en het later ons hoofspoorsnyer geword. Asulks het hy voor geloop en ons in n V formasie agter hom. Eendag in Oktober/November het Anton met een van ons seksies op patrollie uitgegaan. Ek was nie by nie, maar het die landmyn gehoor toe die spoorsnyer dit sowat 20(?) km van ons af afgetrap het. Hy is op slag dood. Anton was sover ek weet net agter hom in die ander spoor van die tweespoorpad. Hy het sleg seergekry. Ek het hom nie weer op die Grens gesien nie Net na Kerfees is ek met malaria na 1 Milit^ere Hospitaal ontruim. Daar het Anton my kom opsoek om seker te maak dat ek OK was. Tot vandag is ek spyt dat ek nooit die guts gehad het om sy ouers op te soek om vir hulle te s^e watter gentleman hulle vir n seun gehad het nie...
