Nice to hear from you, Stoney!
Never fear.... as to the Angola Battlefields Tour, I am sure there will be a repeat again next year! I also hope to join one of these tours someday soon, as you say.... thoses ghosts need to be laid to rest!
In the interim, we local guys are dealing with it through our wargames, and often come to realise just HOW lucky we have been that time (or shall I say... FAVOURED???). Things often could have gone so horribly wrong!
If you have information about the details of the SWATF battalions you served with, that would be most welcome. I am always in search of organigrams, strengths, call signs, equipment used, even commander names, etc.... that I can use in creating accurate scenarios for our miniature refights. At the moment I dont even know if the SWATF battalions adhered to the std SADF structures and call signs as per SA Inf Bn.... Maybe you can shed some light here
