Ian and Ricardo - Platoon 1, 3 SAI, somewhere across the 'kaplyn' May 1, 1980, Operation 'Liberation 1". Note the 60mm and R1 rifle were carried. That's over 10kg plus four 60mm rounds at 1.4kg (total 5.6kgs) and four R1 mags took total to near 20kgs and that's not counting water or food. I was nearly always spared having a turn carrying the platoon B25 radio.
Not a great photo but the only one I have of 3 SAI training at Mosita 1979 prior to going to SWA. Note the big sleeping bag on the back and the aerial of the platoon radio. You can see in the background a troopie with his full blanket roll. Ironic that we trained for the border with conventional warfare approach to training in what we carried.
