After my Graduation in 1983 I joined the South African Navy. I served from 1984 – 1988 on-board the South African Strike Craft Kobie Coetsee & Jim Fouche.

After a quick stint in Simons Town in basic training and then to Signal School for advanced training I was assigned to Strike Craft Flotilla in Durban.

All I can say it was an experience of a lifetime and never to be forgotten.
