    MEDIA “RECCES”
    In media reports we often see that a person, who is being reported on, is referred to as having been “an ex-recce” or “a former recce” with some rank assigned to him.
    In many, but not all, these individuals do not control the content of media reports.

    FACEBOOK “HEROES”

    With the advent of social media there are a lot of wannabes that suddenly have a new outlet and perceived audience where they think they may now trumpet their many “heroic achievements” for all and sundry to see.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

    That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    There is a mild mental disorder where you create an alternative reality of your past in your mind. They really believe what they are telling you too. due to block out abuse or just a egocentric attention seeking thing.

    If you call them out on there lies they sometimes respond very aggressively towards you.

    Have come across a few people like this. Usually middle aged men and women.

    Ja is so, ek stem. Mense wat in die Recces was praat nie daaroor nie. Ek praat uit ondervinding uit.... nee wag, ek was nie self daar nie... my pa was.

    Hy was in die laat 70’s op die grens. 1 para batteljon, sniper en recce. En soos ek sê, ek praat uit ondervinding.

    My pa en n vriend wat saam hom daar was, het soms saam gebraai by ons huis. Ek sou saam sit, en natuurlik die braaiwerk doen. Na die braai, sou my pa vir my gevra het om in die huis in te gaan. Dis dan die tyd wanneer hy en sy vriend oor die oorlog dae gesels het. Ek mag nooit saam geluister het nie.

    Eendag toe van my vriende by my kom kuier het, vra ek my pa om bietjie van sy weermag stories te vertel. Wel, die kort antwoord was net “nee”, en dit was daar gelaat.

    My pa het ook geen tatoeer merke nie.

    Tot vandag toe vertel hy my nie van daai dae nie. Ek lees mar n boek hier en daar.

    I've never understood the phenomenon myself.

    I failed Recce induction. That's as close as I got. That's all I can claim and would claim: that I took my best shot and was found wanting.

    I was RTU within a week.

    Like number of ex “Scouts” from Rhodesia.......if they actually had a 1/10 of those claiming to be then Uncle Robert would never made it to power.

    Something I learnt from my Grand Fathers......one who fought in Anglo Boer and WW1, the other in WW2, and father who served his whole life in SAAF.......real soldiers never talk about what they did during the war to civvies, and seldom to their comrades in arms.

    I did serve and it was the best and worse times of my life....that’s all I’m prepared to share.

    Stay well and out of trouble

    PS...... if MK had a 1/10 of those claiming to be the “new” South Africa would be >40 years by now.

    The "real makhoyas" will never brag about the fact that they served in SF. A SF Insignia tattoo on the forearm or leg is 10/10 times my confirmation of a wannabee. 1 or 2 strategically asked questions about the nice" Recce Tattoo" usually confirms the bullsh*t they talking. A wise old man once said: Never trust a man with a gold chain or a Recce Tattoo !!! :-) And yes, i do have a Springbok emblem on my arm and can confirm 100% that i have never played for the Boks.

    I spent a brief period as a (new) car sales man at one stage and as working with the public goes, met some interesting characters. Also had one guy come in talking big and looking and test driving the expensive stuff, wanting to show his wife etc etc, also turned completely different. Or the very yummy mummy who walked in, trouble personified. Told me she's getting divorced and is losing her BMW. Wanting something cheaper but with the same driving experience and image

    I am sure Petri can entertain us for hours with simialr stories.

    Recce and army stories aside, I get wary about someone very quickly if they just out of the blue start to share very personal details and stories to total strangers.

    And yes I'm one of those people who can easily start a conversation with total strangers in a shop, pub, campsite etc. but there's talking about this and that, and then there's sharing your life story.
    It's in pubs where the world's greatest ideas begin.

    True story. I wonder what goes through their minds to think that a car salesman wants to hear their life stories. Heck, when I go car shopping, I talk about cars.
