Killed in Action, 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 and also died shortly being hit. 32 Battalion reinforcements attacked and dislodged the ambushing force but were elected to secure the immediate area and attend to casualties rather than pursue the retreating enemy force. 2/Lieutenant Van Der Walt had narrowly escaped death on a previous occasion when he was wounded in the head by enemy small arms ground fire while flying as a passenger on a C160 from Eenhana to Ondangwa when the aircraft was shot at by a PLAN patrol. Another member of this same 32 Battalion patrol was later Killed in Action North of Mulemba on 06 June 1980
