Busy reading Hannes Wessels's book " A handful of hard men".
Makes one wonder a little about the way we (South Africa under Vorster) threw Rhodesia under the bus.
Yip, i am reading Ian Smith ' the great betrayal' and i am surprised at Vorster. What was he thinking!

The current situation would have been very different
don't worry about things you can't change,change the things you can.

I did a camp at 61 Mech Bn at the end of '88 and Cmdt Mike Muller was telling us about the battle at Lomba. A proud yet humble professional soldier that spoke so highly of his men. Sadly he is no longer with us because I'm sure he would have liked to be there for the book launch.
