It is with deep sadness that we have learned of the passing of Colin Bruchhausen, in Alberton on Sunday 25 November 2007. A South African, Colin joined Support Commando in 1976 before transferring to 14 Troop 3 Commando in 1977 where he served until 1979. He died of a heart attack induced by a lung disease that he’d contracted in his work.

He met his wife in Salisbury when he was 17, married at 20, and was still happily married when he died. He will be remembered as an MAG gunner par excellence and equally for his gentle, laid-back humour. RIP china.
