    I heard all kinds of excuses from my troops about why some of their kit went missing. Some reasons given were quite "creative", but generally it turned out they had a few too many and simply left their stuff behind.

    If these guys were actually robbed, well that is shameful. Hopefully no weapons were lost in the process.

    This was from a while back, but noted that wounded Ranger Cory Remsburg wore his South African parachute wings to the State of the Nation address that he attended. I'm sure that he has earned other wings, so quite proud to note that he choose to wear his South African wings.

    This link lists all of his medals, badges and awards. It's an impressive list:

    It seems he has done 4 or 5 jump courses. The SADF jump wings are not specifically mentioned.

    On Friday 21 February 2014 the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) celebrated Armed Forces Day at Air Force Base Bloemspruit, Bloemfontein. The event honoured the men and women in uniform who serve the nation. The President was the main officiating functionary and paid tribute to those soldiers who fell in the line of duty whilst serving South Africa. Bravery medals were conferred on those who demonstrated heroism during the battle of Bangui in the Central African Republic (CAR).
