I'm glad this thread has been posted as I'm trying to get in touch with a Saffa.
He goes by the name of Leighrj.
I've been trying to get hold of him for ages but I've had no luck so far in tracking him down.
I was born in South Africa, in Simonstown, my parents troopship (yes it was a while ago) put in there returning from Singapore. My family later moved to South Africa where my dad trained local infantrymen until 1966. He left the country in a huff when they started fucking the English speaking officers about!
Although I have both birth certificates for UK & South Africa I'd like to make one thing quite clear, I am not a fucking Yarpie and I don't like Yarpies very much!
