About The War In Angola
 
Training Base Serpa Pinto

In the meantime, plans to also establish a training base as Serpa Pinto (Menongue) have progressed. For this purpose Kambuta again visited Rundu. A member of the training team and the operations officer were then sent to Serpa Pinto to investigate the possibilities, upon which they selected an old flecha-training camp about seven kilometres south of Serpa Pinto. The camp was speedily occupied by a South African forward team under Maj. J.R. (James) Hills on 13 October 1975. Maj. Frank Bestbier took over the command two days later.
