Note the qually badge - a 'skiet piet'
THAT rifle.
Skiet Piet is the crouching commando cap badge used by the errr... commandos. Now disbanded because having them protect farms and farmers was just not cricket, old bean.

Wynand spent a while in chookie in Angolsch but I reckon Sakkie could have him...

 
Bloody hell! He's aged a bit, but then we all have.

Great bloke. Was doing a grand job in Baghdad at the same time that I was working there.
 
NIGERIAN ARMY 3RD BATTALION. . VICTORIA ISLAND, 1959


I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Nigerian Army for donating their webbing to the British Army throughout the 60's and 70's and for the lessons in blancoing my belt with donkey stone until they had enough 58' pattern to issue.

Ja, most blokes were terrified of him, even those of us not in his mob but speaking to him and the other heavies later on once out, they were all good eggs with the welfare and needs of their troops at heart. Too young and dumb to know that at the time but grateful for the levels of professionalism in hindsight.
