Some of the guys outside our pad.
(L to RJ Stu Robinson, Jay-Jay Strijdom, Billy Duncan, L/Cpl Aucamp, Trevor Lorimer, Rfn Enslin (sorry mate I never knew your first name!)
Driving with ease through ditches like these...
...makes L/Cpl Aucamp (standing above driver's cab) think anyone can do it. He was wrong...

There were often football matches played in KwaThema, and sometimes we played in them. Note the much hated hostels in the background. Men would live in them communally, and violence was the norm.

Me on the roof of our tent for some reason
