On the shooting range. On this specific day the afternoon turned into a disaster when we were caught in a raging dust storm. The morning was so quiet I would never have expected it to turn out the way it did.

The Ratel (badger) is as tough as its name suggests and has been the infantry combat vehicle of choice of the SANDF for many decades. It is in the process of being replaced by a new vehicle being developed. The new vehicle is a state of the art war fighting machine, which according to reports, is the best the world has ever seen.

Delta Company, 1 SAI Bn, which consists mostly out of troops from 6 SAI Bn is currently at De Brug Mobilisation Area near Bloemfontein. I took this photo as the sun was setting a few days ago. I will be posting more photos when I have access to the internet again.
Our first day at De Brug Mobilisation Area. Here the company received their camp beds to sleep on. The first few days were unpleasant due to the cold and other minor irritations, but we are almost fully settled in by now.
