RE: 2 Signal Regiment

RE: 2 Signal Regiment

Hierdie eenheid was deel van my tuiste tydens my twee jaar diensplig in die middel tagtigs. Ek was baie trots gewees om die skouer embleem van die eenheid te dra aangesien ek in my skooldae met wedvlugduiwe gevlieg het. Elke keer as ek na die embleem gekyk het het ek terug verlang na my duiwe wat ek by my huis in Potchefstroom moes agterlaat....
