Killed in action, in a contact with the enemy during Operation Moduler. The South African armored column had penetrated deep into Angola and had just formed a laager to take bearings on their position and objectives. Two Angolan Mig fighter jets had spotted the column, making a low pass initially they turned and came in for the attack. The Migs each dropped 500lbs parachute retarded bombs, one bomb landing just behind the Ratel IFV, literally driving the back axel into the ground and igniting the Ratel's 90mm ammunition. The second 500lb bomb made a crater that an SADF soldier could stand in. The Ratel's driver Frikkie De Jager was taking a break and resting in the back of the Ratel when the bombs hit and died a little later of his injuries caused when the ratel's ammunition detonated, a fellow crew member, Gary Pearman White, lost a leg in this same incident but was evacuated and survived.
