In memory of -

Luit-Colonel Eddie Shika

  E Company / 06069550

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

"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 - Eddie

- Sgt. Mark Janse van Rensburg - Eenheid 19 "Voet Soldatjie" (Foot soldier - U19)


Die wat nog vir Eddie Shika onthou - hy is Dinsdag oggend (18 Junie) in die vroeƫ oggend ure oorlede. Hy het die afgelope jare by Loopbaanbestuur gewerk en was met sy afsterwe luitenant-kolonel. Hy het gereeld by my by die kantoor kom inloer en was nog steeds die ou vriendelike Eddie wat my 2IB was toe ek Kompaniebevelvoerder van E-Kompanie was. Mag jy sag rus ou kameraad
