This happened the day before Eion and Davidís 20 birthday.

We got beaten here and pulled back to Cela and our troop slept on the road to Santa Comba. Jan Breytenbach had no liaison between him and Kruis. Jan Breytanbach gave us all Cuban cigars when he joined. David was injured by mortar fire. There was a man made forest here.

A 120 mm Mortar landed on a turret door here The crew commanders turret was domed and open and it took the top of his head off.
