|During the support of the attack on a known FAPLA position, the 32 anti-tank sqn was to lead the attack (starting at 06h30) with the tanks flanking left and right. After many attempts, due to the dense bush, the 32 anti-tank sqn moved to the flanks and the tanks to the front. After the 3rd attempt, the attack proceeded through the objective. Duing all this time, the enemy had withdrawn across the shona and hard idea firing positions on their previous held position. During the progress the column turned left, leaving the right flank facing the enemy (unknowingly). During a debussing, we were sitting on top of the ratel drinking and eating when the enemy attacked. Johan climbed through the gunners hatch, and I when through the side door (opposite the attack). Once inside, Johan wanted to close his hatch. It is at this time that the 121 mm mortar landed on the commanders hatch lip. Johan, unfortunately was in direct line of the expolosion. Johan, you are not forgotten and never will be.
