Badly wounded, south of Mutuanjamba (approximately 80km inside Angola) during first phase of Operation Sceptic while carrying out area clearing and domination in order to establish a Tactical Headquarters at Mulemba. When their patrol crossed a gravel road in the kill zone of a vehicle ambush, they walked into a large PLAN force that were dug in with mortars and machine guns and were able to inflict casualties and pin down the patrol. 2/Lieutenant van der Walt was killed instantly after being shot multiple times by a Soviet PKM machine gun. Staff Sergeant Braz immediately went to his aid and was hit multiple times by the same dug in PKM machine gun. He was was still alive when the casevac arrived but succumbed to his wounds a short while later. Rifleman Joao was critically wounded in the initial exchange of fire. Reinforcements dislodged the ambushing force, but were forced to secure the immediate area and attend to casualties rather than pursue the enemy. Joao withdrew and attempted to return to nearby TB, but became lost and died of wounds (according to intercepts and evidence supported by his badly damaged equipment). Despite extensive efforts to find him, he was not recovered.
