Hi daar, ek is opsoek na enige
mense wat saam my pa diensplig
gedoen het. Hy was in
Grootfontein Panser Kommando.
Johan Roos (bynaam was Rosie).
Hy het van 1979-1980 diensplig
gedoen en was ook in Angola en
Windhoek. Hy onthou nie veel
mense se name nie maar onthou
hul gesigte. Een outjie se
bynaam was "Sally" oor hy daar
aangekom het met lang blonde
hare (van KZN af).. Enige inligting
sal waardeer word. Kontak my
asb by
anastasiaroos1@gmail.com. Ek
