Peter Platt Beaver Shaw and Keith (Pop's) Rayne Bikita in very Guti weather, we were picked up later that evening by my father who was an AHI with the Vetenarary department taken to his Government rest camp in Bikita village for dinner and a few chibulies (beers). Our pilots declined Dad's offer for supper and went to the Police club to attend a party being held by the Member in Charge BSAP. That night we were attacked by a groupof terrorists from the surrounding hills. This story is recorded in Choppertech together with the fireforce actions the following day.
Pete Platt was killed in a motorcycle accident towards the end of the war and Pops Rayne is retired and living on the outskirts of Johannesburg.
