"As you grieve know that we are remembering you,
and honoring the memory of Graham Maurice."

"Fire in my lungs, and my camoe clinging to my body, you would have to use a metal scraper to remove it from my skin.
My cover, was no guarantee against death, but for now as I grasped for air, it was my only short comfort.

... the shots, and the Sergeant shouting - Kry die (censored)! - (Get the SOB)
Many years after that I was asked why?
My answer remains constant - He is my brother, we move as one against the tyrant called the Death Angel. A Tyrant unmoved by politics, hate, or any personal believes, but a Tyrant going for a world where men hate each other.

In all of that chaos, I felt the presence... I felt the presence of a Higher Being - and although through all of this I was questioning life on earth... the only constant Northern Star was that of my Brother leading the way My Brother - Graham Maurice

FORMER SAINTS LIFESAVER DIES

A former Port Shepstone High School pupil and Saints lifesaver, Graham Morris Davis 20, of Pumula, was killed during active service while on duty as a member of the South African Police on Monday March 10.

Graham the elder son of the manager of Blaike-Johnstone, Port Shepstone, Dennis Davis and his wife, Myra Southport's librarian and a member of the Toastmistress Club, wanted to join either the police force from an early age.

A very keen lifesafer, Graham belonged to the Saints Surf Lifesaving Club during his high school days and after leaving Port Shepstone High where he completed the last three years of his high school education.

He was also a avid reader, played hockey and enjoyed motor cycling.

This quiet, popular young man worked at the Pumula Hotel as a barman after leaving school while waiting to go into the police force.

The last time his parents saw him was when they attended his passing out parade in Pretoria in November, after which he was sent for futher training at Groblersdal. He would have turned 21 in October.

Graham's younger brother, Kevin, 19, who is in the army in Kimberley, was granted compassionate leave to return home this week.

A funeral service is to be held at St Katharine's Church, Port Shepstone at 11 am on Friday March 14. Mr and Mrs Davis requested that no flowers be sent, but suggested that donations in lieu of flowers be made to the Saints Surf Lifesaving Club.
