This is an unofficial version of the SADF Roll Of Honour, listing all those members of the SADF that died in the line of duty from the start of the SADF in 1961 to its termination in 1994. I tried to be as comprehensive as possible by using three different sources, all of which claims to be complete. It took a lot of cross referencing across sources to come up with this list, but still I cannot claim it to be the most comprehensive possible.
I do not mean to take away from any of the other publications of the Roll Of Honour, but merely attempt to provide alternative means to list, locate and find the names of loved ones that made the ultimate sacrifice.
I gratefully acknowledge the work done on the South African Roll of Honour by
- John Dovey, who has been doing an outstanding job of hosting the ROH on his site at www.justdone.co.za/roh - I can only urge visitors to War In Angola to also visit his Roll Of Honour and also post their dedications, photos, and stories there.
- Colonel(Ret) Graham du Toit (Facebook: https://web.facebook.com/graham.dutoit.7), who has ceaselessly and with endless dedication been sourcing details about each individual death and posting it daily on selected groups on Facebook. His contribution is truly immeasurable! Thank you Graham!
- The South African War Graves Project (https://www.southafricawargraves.org/), without which I would have not been able to start this project.
