Southern African Wargames Resource Page


 Itís been a number of years since i took my web site off line.  Since then iíve seen variations of my SADF order of battles being discussed in forums and mailing list.  In addition over the years iíve come across numerous errors, corrections and of course new updated information.  Accordingly iíve decided to put the info back on line.    Over the next couple of months iíll update and/or correct the orders of battle.  Iíll also add comments where I deem it appropriate.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, I can be contacted at
