"Mayday Mayday Mayday..... Dakar this is ZUHS416 sending a Mayday onbehalf of ZUHS417 that went down. Please contact our Schackleton at Bissau and warn them that they must assist. The position ZUHS417 went down is 0925N 2003W and the time of incident at 1521Z...." On 30 October 1965, 55 years ago, this radio message by Capt Theo de Munnink the navigator in 416 set in motion a massive S&R mission to find the two 417 crew members Capt Martin Jooste and Lt Anton de Klerk.
Below is the last ever photo taken of 417 taken by Mac van der Merwe shortly after the formation took of from Sal Island en route to Ascension Island.

LAASTE HOOFSTUK: Erewag vir twee helde uit Angola
Deur kapt André van de Venter

DIE lyke van maj Wynand du Toit se twee makkers wat in Angola gesneuwel het gedurende die patrollie waarin hy gevange geneem is, het per vliegtuig uit Luanda op die Lugmagbasis Ysterplaat in Kaapstad aangekom.

'n Erewag het op die aanloopbaan die lyke van kpl Louis Pieter van Breda en kpl Rowland Ridgard Liebenberg - albei was 25 - ingewag. Maj Du Toit self, asook verskeie ander Weermagoffisiere en familielede van die oorledenes het op die koms van die vliegtuig gewag.

Die oorskotte van die twee Suid-Afrikaanse soldate is met 'n vragvliegtuig van die SA Lugmag in Luanda afgehaal en terselfdertyd is 12 Angolese soldata aan dié land se regering oorhandig. Die uitruilooreenkomns maak deel uit van dieselfde ooreenkoms waarin maj Du Toit in September verlede jaar uitgeruil is vir die Hollander Klaas de Jonge en die Fransman Pierre André Albertini.

Maj Du Toit, toe 'n kaptein, was sedert Mei 1985 in 'n tronk in Luanda aangehou nadat hy tydens 'n patrollie in die noorde van Angola gevange geneem is. Sy twee makkers, kpl Libenberg en kpl Van Breda, het tydens 'n skremutseling by dié geleentheid gesneuwel. Hul lyke is in Luanda gehou en nou eers aan Suid-Afrika besorg.

Mnr R.F. Botha, Minister van Buitelandse Sake, het in 'n verklaring die Regering se dank betuig teenoor alle betrokkenes wat tot die geslaagde afhandeling van die uitruiling gelei het.

...were then on our way to a place called General Machado and then took the train to General Machado. We had left very early and arrived at General Machado at about four o'clock in the afternoon, where we offloaded and moved into a camp.

= Did you offload there? =

We offloaded off at General Machado because we were not sure where the enemy was. We would drive on from there by road. We formed a laager that evening and met a group of refugees who were now starting to retreat all over again. Then we realized we that we were now relatively close to the enemy. From there we moved forward to a village with the naan of Cangonga, where we deployed. Here we encountered the UNITA forces which were by then fully engaged in retreat.

The Cmdt then went to talk to the people and he was informed that the MPLA forces were very close. We just slept there that night at a place, and we moved again the next day and slept on Munhango that night. It was the 29th. On the 30th we were now moving forward to deploy these people again; we prepared anti-tank defensive positions. We tried to deploy the UNITA forces. Insurmountable language problems, and we did not know each other. It was basically a mess.

= Have you personally deployed these armoured cars? =

Yes. I was appointed as the advance-guard commander at that time. Normally we divide a force into an advance guard, the main force, and the rear guard. Basically, the part of the force that was now going to fight the battle were deployed in the advance guard. This included the armored personnel carriers, the artillery battery ....

= How far did you fly? =

We flew to a village called Cassamba. Then we came back ....

= What was there on Cassamba? Did you see people there? =

Yes, well, we could see the forces deployed on the ground; we could see the locals fleeing from the east. Then our biggest problem was getting our force there because the roads in this area of ​​Silva Porto and further east were very bad. Then we got the plan to get a ride on the train. We assembled railway trucks that had belonged to Zaire and the Benguela Railway Company. We got hold of a locomotive - one of the old wood burning locomotives - a train driver ....

= Was there another driver in the area? =

Yes, the people were still on Silva Porto even though the line was no longer functioning. We then had to get the station running again, got the trucks together and load. The charging started. The date of the loading I cannot ... I do not know; I can possibly take it out here. The day we boarded the train was November 28th.

Well, the whole regiment was mobilized for Savannah. I can not clearly remember the dates now. I think it was the Monday I think the 25th / Consult personal documents./ No. We were on our way out of Bloemfontein on the 19th. The 19th of November, by train, with our armored cars - the whole regiment was called up. We arrived at Grootfontein on Friday night at about twelve o'clock. Then I was the first element to be flown in. We then went in on Monday to basically set up a bridgehead on Silva Porto. We left on Monday morning the 5th. I can no longer remember pretty well. It took such a matter of three to four days to get the fighting group together.

= Where were you then housed at Silva Porto? =

We then moved into the old Catholic convent.

Yes, we were then the first inhabitants of the monastery, which was later converted to the Maintenance Unit, at Silva Porto.

1 Maintenance Unit was located there. Kmdt van Vuuren had been there. We were basically grouped together there. The commander arrived. The battle group developed.

"want toe is dit net stukke .... Dit was een van ons “treats” gewees om - ons is mos nou die ou manne in die oorlog, dan kom die ouens aan. Dan wil hulle altyd die Luso Monster sien. Dan kom hulle nou mooi vars aan, geskeer. Dan sê ons, "Kom ons gaan wys jou die Luso Monster." Dan vat ons hom daar bo-op "Boaaaaargh,” "pass" hy uit. Dan is hy nou so siek soos 'n hond.

+ Was die lyke nog daarin? +

Ja, alles nog daarin. Stukke bene, boude en vleis ....

= Hulle het sakke vol van hulle opgetel =

+ Hoeveel mense was op die monster? +

Ons het die ding uitgewerk op 18, van die stukke wat ons aanmekaar kon sit, dat dit 18 mense was. Daar het byvoorbeeld een man die volgende oggend, toe ons nou na die ding gaan kyk die 11de Desember, by die rusper agter het daar so 'n kol gelê; so 'n nat kol en deur dit wat jy op skool geleer het kon jy nou 'n mens uit hierdie ding uitmaak. Die twee heupbene, die bene was weg maar die twee heupbene net nog daar gesit. Jy kon sy lewer sy maag en die kop bo-op, maar van die slag van die ontploffing lyk dit of sy vel net eenvoudig padgegee het, want al sy binnegoed het net so gesak, soos 'n eier wat jy oopbreek. Dan wil almal net die Luso Monster sien. Ons het 'n geweldige gevoel gehad teen hierdie poeierkwas-tipes wat op Grootfontein sit en ons moet die oorlog baklei en dan vat ons hom en sê daar is hy. "Boaaargh," daar lê die ou. Toe op die ou einde toe begin hierdie ding baie stink, want by het nie baie ver gelê nie. Toe het ek en sers-maj Barnard gegaan en 'n klomp Aftur dromme wat daar gelê het binne in gegooi - brandstof - diesel binne ingegooi. Toe skiet ons hom aan die brand - jy het so vir twee drie dae gebrand. Die reuk was vieslik, maar daarna het dit aangegaan.

= Hy het seker ten minste ses skote deur hom gehad? =

Nee, daar was agt skote wat hom getref het. Daai eerste ou wat hulle uitgeskiet net - hulle het hom so op 500 tree die eerste keer gevang - maar daai eerste ou - waar ek gestaan net het ek daai ou bo die wal sien uitkom. Daai ou is seker goed vyftig, sestig, vt in die lug ingeskiet. Dis nou waar ons uitgewerk net

= Weet jy dat - Luso, Luso was sover ek kan vasstel die geveg met die meeste vyandelike verliese wat ons toegedien net. =

Wel laat ek jou sê, Luso het lelike goed gehad ....

= By Brug 14 met die artillerietweegeveg net ons ook 'n klomp daar uitgeskiet, maar 'n mens weet nie hoeveel nie. Hulle praat van 300 ongevalle en dit sluit gewondes in. Het julle 250 dooies gehad op Luso? =

Dit is wat ons getel het op die lughawekompleks, maar ons het nie dorp toe gegaan en die lyke in die dorp getel nie. Wat ek gemaak het is maar - wel toe kom ons nou agter op Luso dat hier gaan 'n gesondheids-probleem kom, want die lyke het begin swel en dis waar ek vir die eerste keer gesien het dat varke eet mense. Toe sê die kmdt ons moet die dorp skoonmaak. Nou ons pantser-ouens net almal doodgeskiet. Toe kom ons maar op die ou einde bymekaar. Toe sê ek wel, jy het daar baklei groep 1, dis jou lyke groep 2 julle het daar bakiel en daai lyke is joue, maar toe kon ons dit nie doen nie want in die tropiese hitte het die lyke al begin ontbind en ag voor die manne kon vat aan die goed - ons was toe al hard en taai - het die manne al begin siek word. Toe het ons naderhand uit so 'n tipe regeringsgarage het ons een van hierdie "front-end loaders" in die hande gekry. Toe het ons maar die ding bestuur en ons het lang pale gekry. Dan sit ons die laaigraaf plat op die pad tot by die lyk. Dan vat ons stompe en dan rol ons die lyk so in en dan het ons maar die goed begrawe. Dieselfde ding - ons was geweldig vies op 'n stadium, want brig Schoeman het daar aangekom en gesê hy wil die Luso Monster hê as 'n monument op Rundu en ons moet die ding skoonmaak en vir hom terugstuur. Toe het ek net gesê, "Oor my dooie liggaam. Hier is ek. Sit my onder arres. Sluit my toe, maar ek maak nie daai ding skoon nie en ek sê vir niemand om hom skoon to maak nie,

Dit was nie met júlle onttrekking wat die ammunisietrok op die pad aan die brand geraak het nie? =

Nee, dit was met Cela se onttrekking. Nee, ons het geen – ons onttrekking het goedgegaan. Pit was net Onderhoudseenheid se gemors op die pad - drywers wat nie hulle voertuie kon hanteer nie. Toe gery. Toe ons die voigende oggend ry, het Piper daar agtergebly en ons het toe onttrek. Oor die brug by Caiundo - daar het one weer gesels met anaer elemente van Piper - maar ook gelag vir Piper wat op daai stadium op UNITAS geskiet het by pad-blokkades en sulke dinge.

Piper het - van Piper se mense het ons gewaarsku dat SWAPO langs die pad is, maar ons het maar toe gelag vir SWAPO op daai stadium; redelik lus vir SWAPO weer, om met jou eie vyand te baklei. So 'n ent af met die pad het ons toe 'n lorrie gekry - kamstig SWAPO’s wat hulle doodgeskiet het. Toe is dit 'n klomp UNITA’s wat hulle ge-“tackie” het : FNLA troepe / wat UNITA aangeval het /.

= Was dlt toe Piper se mense? =

Ja, Piper se burgermagelemente. Hulle net toe seker die lorrie vir SWAPO's aangesien en hulle gekap.

= Ek weet hulle het waarskuwing gehad vir SWAPO. Dit is hoekom hullo daar moes wees =

Maar hulle was vreesiik vreesbevange en hulle wou by ons weet hoe skiet die ouens, hoe baklei hulle, maar ons was op daai stadium nie lus om met enigeen te praat nie. Dit was net ‘n kwessie van huis toe. Ons is toe daar deur, daai aand weer geslaap op 'n plek, die volgende dag 'n ent gery ....

= Het julle op Katuitui geslaap duskant die spoor of op Savati? =

Twaalfuur daai aand het ons op Savati geslaap. Daar net ons nou so 'n finale dankseggingsdiens gehad met padre Russell, want ons was 'n Veggroep wat toe geen verliese gely het nie - behalwe vir Delham - geen ander mense ....

Daar was nog redelik Portugese – blankes, Ek kan onthou van ‘n Chinese vrou wat in die buitewyke by die sokkerstadion gebly het. Daar was nog 'n paar. Hierdie was 'n Chinees, twee Chinese vroue wat daar gebly het. Daar op die lughawe gesit, toe het die kmdt my kom haal en ons is na die brigadier toe; brig Roos toe. Toe het hy vir my gesê ek moet agterhoedebevelvoerder wees vir die onttrekking uit Silva Porto uit. Ek moes toe wag tot die laaste. Daai middag moes twee Zaïre Lugmag Herkules vliegtuie inkom met ammunisie vir UNITA. Ek moes die lughawe hou tot tyd en wyl die Zaire element weg is. Dit het onaangenaam gevoel - hier ry almal; ons sit nog en die swartetjies kyk vir ons. Hoe meer ons vra, "Wanneer kom die viiegtuig?" hoe minder sê die ou vir ons wanneer kom die vliegtuig. Ons net genoeg verstand gehad om te besef dat MPLA seker baie sterk op die aanmars is. Die laaste vliegtuig het seker so 20 voor 5 ingekom so toe is ons met 'n maksimum spoed daar weg! Ons het gery - dwarsdeur die nag gery ….

= Watter pad net julle toe gery? Sa Da Bandeira of Serpa? =

Toe kom ons af Serpa toe. Ons het geweldige probleme gehad, want voor my agterhoedemag (wat die pantserkareskadron was en 'n troep artillerie en peloton infanterie) was hierdie hele Onderhouds-eenheid se voertuie en die goed breek en staan. Ons net 'n hele paar van die goed daar van die pad afgestoot wat nie meer 'n ekonomiese saak was nie en aan die brand gesteek. Hierdie ou Portugese wrakke wat hulle saam het, het vir ons probleme gegee. Ons het die aand in Serpa Pinto aangekom in die swaarste reën wat ek in my lewe gesien het - 20 oor 5 die oggend, net so voor eerste lig. Toe is ons geweldig moeg en ek het daai aand gesien ouens - wat in water wat só diep loop op die teeraanloopbane - het daar gaan lê en slaap op die teer in die water. Hy lig net sy kop op met 'n sak or 'n ding en net so het hulle gelê en slaap, so moeg was hulle. Ons het daai hele dag op Serpa Pinto gebly - daai aand daar geslaap. Die volgende oggend is ons toe daar weg - ons het vir Veggroep Piper daar gelos om die lughawe te hou ....

= Met ander woorde julle het toe nie probleme gehad om vir hulle te vertel dat julle gaan onttrek nie =

Nee. Nee ons het toe net gery. Ons het toe vir die bevelvoerder op Mungo gaan sê dat one gaan onttrek. Ons het ook die brug vir hom voorberei vir vernieling - plofstofladings geplaas, geboor en alles en vir hom gewys hoe om die goed te skiet. So hulle het geweet ons ry. Ek dink dis twee brûe wat ons voorberei het ....

= Hoe groot was hulle elemente op Mungo gewees ongeveer? =

So twee kompanies - 2 na 300 man. Wel ons het toe onttrek en op Silva Porto aangekom. Die ouens was baie moeg. Al die magte was toe al daar - ons het mekaar so bietjie begin groet ....

= Het julle in die donker gery ? =

Dwarsdeur die nag.

= Ek bedoel julle het nie ligte aangesit nie. =

Nee, geen ligte - in die donker. Geweldig baie probleme gehad drywers - as jy halt vir 'n paar minute dan raak die drywertjies aan die slaap, maar ons het toe ongeluksvry gery tot daar. Op Silva Porto maar weer hewig gegroet onder mekaar. Dit was toe baie aardig die keer, want ons moes toe van die stasie af dwarsdeur Silva Porto ry om by die vliegveld te kom. Waar jy in die verlede die held was - allerhande soorte van dinge wat ons nou al as normaal aanvaar het, was die plaaslike bevolking hierdie keer net die teenoorgestelde. Toe het hulle al begin weet die Suid¬Afrikaners gaan onttrek....

= Was hulle toe vyandiggesindheid? =

Ja wel nie vyandig nie, maar hulle het jou begin so snaaks aankyk. Ons het toe op die lugnawe gaan sit ....
