He was taken to the grave of Trooper Niel Lombard of B Squadron 1SSB who was killed at the bridge over the Massaba River. His grave is virtually on the cross roads of two pathways. After 31 years, one cannot see that there is a grave there but the headman of that area after pacing off from one reference point to another, made a cross on the ground with his toe and said here is where I buried the man after pulling him out of the "tank."
