Accidentally killed during a two week Cross-Training Infantry course at Oshivello. The Armour troops were taught how to do basic fire and movement as an infantry section in a "V" formation. The accident happened as the troops finished a live exercise when a MAG gunner was in the process of making his machinegun safe. There was still a round in the chamber and when he moved the breech-block mechanism forward, a shot went off and Labuschagne, who was in the "V" formation directly ahead of the MAG Gunner, was struck in the back of the head by the bullet and mortally wounded. Despite the Medic's best efforts to keep him alive, when the Medical Doctor arrived, Labuschagne was pronounced dead at the scene.
