General Jannie Geldenhuys, Chief of the South African Defense Force 1985-1990, has recently launched the english edition of his latest book  "We were there - WINNING the WAR for Southern Africa" at The Ditsong National Museum of Military History (formerly the South African National Museum of Military History). The afrikaans version "Ons was daar - was launched early December

Gerda and I had the pleasure of being invited to this book launch. While I was there I had the most interesting conversation with Gen Denis Earp and discovered some strange coincidents.Gen Earp was the Chief of the South African Air Force at the time I had my accident.

Firstly I find out that we share the same birthday -  7th of June.

Then I find out that Gen Earp's Mustang was shot down over North Korea on the 27th September, the exact same day and month that I was shot down in 1987 over Angola.
