Message: January 74. Think A Co. Drilling on the highway and running off when a car came. We were the first intake and there wasn't a parade ground to drill on. Morning run to BB Ranch. Great memories but no shortage of afkak. From there to 3Sai. Then to Bwabata camp to lay ambush after lieutenant Zeelie got killed. Didn't shoot anyone or get shot and I'm thankful for that.
I hope all the blokes that served at the time got put OK.
Thanks for the website. From Melbourne Australia.
