Before the men could extricate themselves, their Ratel 90 was hit and destroyed at point blank by a Soviet T-55 tank shell.

After passing a waterhole near a village his platoon was ambushed. When his mate got to him he told him to leave him and to help the more badly wounded chaps. A terrible accident, where one of the guys accidentally discharged his rifle one evening while all of us were sitting around chatting. Not many people know that Peter Atherton was an amateur boxer of note. n RPG, Grant Clark, nog een, dan Antonie Badenhorst en dan Luit Chris Strydom. Hy haal sy pistool uit en veg met sy linkerhand verder. Barrie's was part of the SWA forces and he along with Tillo von Brandis were send to the SA in 1986 for training.The tank round penetrated the Ratel through the side door and detonated inside the main ammunition storage container. I am turning 40 this year and always wonder what our lives would have been like if he survived. He died shortly after.: 89072623CK Rifleman Derio Arendse from the 2nd Battalion South African Cape Corps was critically injured in a military vehicle accident on 07 September 1990 and succumbed to his injuries in hospital on 09 September 1990. We tried to stop the bleeding, but the bullet had entered his back, through his chest, and got lodged in his thumb. I regret the fact that Brian Mitchell forgot about Peter. I believe that had Peter not been killed during National Service, he would undoubtedly have ranked among our greatest boxers ever. Aan hulle regterkant is nog groepe besig om vorentoe te beweeg. Die seksie aan die linker flank het vasgeloop in die deel waar die basis se loopgrawe 90 grade wegswaai van die lyn van die aanval. Hierdie toeloop van gebeure sou die lewe van ses jong mans kos. Die eerste om te val was FC van Zyl, die man wat die res van die seksie geinspireer het toe niemand meer lus was nie. Wentzel Marx, Gary Walker, Grant Clark, Antonie Badenhorts sneuwel almal. I have some photos of him that I would like to give to his family.Nadat die Suid Afrikaners aan Angola onttrek het in 1976, sou Swapo die geleentheid gebruik om operasionele basisse bykans teen die SWA grens te vestig. n groter kompleks bestaan as wat die foto interpretasie kenners raak gesien het. The platoon was in position for an ambush set up to stop insurgency from the north.Hierdie basisse is vanaf twee groter streeks hoofkwartiere ondersteun. s, noord van Eheke afgeooi word, en met eerstelig die basis uit die noorde aanval. Die Spesiale Magte is sowat 15 kilometer te ver noord uit die vliegtuie gelaat. Toe Drie Twee nog ook halfpad na die teiken, teen ? Shortly before nightfall I received orders from HQ advising that we should expect insurgents from the south, I questioned the commanding officer and got my worst tongue lashing ever in the process, stupid engelsman etc.Cassinga sou die sentrale deel van Swapo se aanvalle op die SWA grens ondersteun, en Eheke die oostelike deel van Owamboland en die Kavango. Drie kompanies van die nuwe 32 Batteljon sou te voet oor die grens, en Eheke vanaf die suide aanval. Om dinge verder te kompliseer was die terrein plat en sonder bakens. n verwoede Swapo mag vasloop is daar met reg gevra of die operasie nie afgelas moes word nie. Die bevelvoerende offisier Brig Gleeson, in Rundu het teen die beter wete van die grond bevelvoerders besluit dat die operasie moes voortgaan. I conveyed this information to the platoon commander.
The Ratel was on the downhill side of a mountain pass, and had to move over to the far left of the dirt road to allow a fully laden timber vehicle pass.
we trained and lived 32 but the fallen where never put on record, just a piss up at buffalo. in southern Angola, a 32 Battalion anti-tank Ratel commanded by 2Lt J. Alves was engaged in combat with FAPLA T-55 tanks, and became bogged down in a muddy shona. Toe die gunner weer om die boom kruip skiet Gert Eksteen hom met sy pistool dood. Hy beweeg terug, waar hy Kapt Meerholz aantref met ? Hy help Meerholz so aba-aba terug na die mediese pos. The tracker told me afterwards we should have shot him. If this is the J Barnard that i served with he was killed at Epupa falls in the Kokoveld(sector 10 ) in May/ June of 1987.
Before the men could extricate themselves, their Ratel was hit and destroyed by a T-55 tank, killing all the crew and men aboard the Ratel, including 2Lt Alves and Capt A. Mc Callum, the commanding officer of Foxtrot Company. Met durf en determinasie veg die aanvallers teen die oormag en wen stukkie vir stukkie die stryd. By die mediese pos pluk hy sy middelvinger wat net aan ? He was out on a mine hunt with his team and a CPL Corrai when the buffel in which they were traveling hit a land mine. Both Cpl Barnard and his closed friend Corria were killed.
The shoulder of the road gave way under the Ratel and it rolled down hill and landed on it's roof. RIP Baadie Joachim and myself enrolled at 10 Art Brigade in Potchefstroom January 1983 and became best mates. I remember buddies well ,we trained together in H company 4 sai ,after mortar training we where moved over to delta on 3 platoon company together .
If memory serves me correctly, Jef was the "gunner" on the vehicle, and was pinned in the hatch, when the Ratel landed on it's roof.2Lt Alves was a troop commander in the Anti - tank sqn of 32 Bn commanded by then Maj Hannes Northmann. Baadie was tragically killed when the Caspir he was travelling in rolled on the road from Ombalantu to Ondangwa. One day we were assigned to repair broken tables he operated a grinder and I held the table soon my great brown pants caught alight and my army shorts underneath melted into my leg. Our mortar troop split in half,the other half going over to c company,having completed training in September 1981 our company deployed to SWA .
