Boshoed day is on the 26th August
This day in 1966 – 51 years ago, was the recognised start of the South African Border War, which lasted 23 years, 6 months, 3 weeks and 2 days.
Please remember the 2,280 members of the SADF that gave their lives in service of their country during this period. Of these 776 were killed in action.
Wear something SADF related on the day.
Can be anything from your boshoed, beret, SAMVOINT badge, Balkie, etc.
Take a selfie and share/post photos on either Facebook or email to SAMVOINT to share on the SAMVOINT website.
Create awareness of our veterans and especially to honour those who made the supreme sacrifice.
Lest we Forget
