This Board is dedicated to my "Band of Brothers" many of whom are still members of the 101 League. The board will grow dynamically and organically in size and organisation just as 101 Bn did and depends largely upon contributions made by League members from their personal collections. The purpose is to bring about greater knowledge and understanding of 101 and dispel myths and misunderstanding about 101 Bn and the various roles performed, through photo's and official documents.
Rainy Season and stuck in the fricken mud again, right up to the diff, only a good run with a kinetic rope or a recovery is going to get this one out.
Aerial view of the Light Workshop at 101 Bn main base Ondangwa littered with vehicles for repair. Yes, we broke them, but they saved our lives.
As usually the "Tiffies" take up the challenge to fix this one in record time in a challenge set by "Whisky Whisky", and they came through. Job completed on due schedule except for final paint coat which they were still waiting for.
Recovery brings RM 2 "Alpha" to the workshop
Our 101 Brothers, recipients of the Honoris Crux Medal for extreme bravery.
When a Casspir is being carried on forklift, you know there is trouble, this one rolled while towing the Kwevoel between Ruacana and Ondangwa. Sadly 2 brothers died and a few were injured in this MVA.
