Afriforum Springbok Vasbyt
Die Afriforum Springbok Vasbyt 2014 Ter ere van die Suid Afrikaanse Lugmag se bydrae tot die Warskause Lugbrug 1944:

Met die Duitse Magte 1944 op die agtervoet, gedurende die Tweede Wereld Oorlog, kom die Pole in opstand. Maar omring deur die vyand, moes die Pole hulp kry. Die SA Lugmag het hulle diens aangebied en vanaf Italie 1600km noord deur vyandelike gebied gevlieg om teen 450 voet hulle hulp aan te Pole af te laai. Ons vereer hierdie dapper manne vir hulle ongekwalifiseerde dapperheid. Baie het nie teruggekom nie. Bryan Jones is afgeskiet maar het wonderbaarlik oorleef. Na 10 maande in ‘n krygsgevangekamp kon hy huistoe kom. Nie almal was so gelukkig nie. Ons eer hom en ander soos hy.
