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.

Message: Was at Katima Mulilo(Wenela) in 77,Rundu 79 and Ondangwa 82 all 3 month stints,The SADF really got their pound of flesh,never regret it though,East Caprivi was unbeliveable and our biggest enemy was the elephants that roamed the bushes when we walked patrol.Remember how hot it was during the day and then at night when you wanted to bed down the heavens opened and you got soaked through.
