Ek verwys na die antwoord tov my vraag aan Brig Dirk Lambrechts, alias Pollex getiteld "Twee wette in kontras met mekaar: Nou hoe nou?". (Verwys na Ask Pollex in Servamus: Maart 2023, vanaf p64.)

Soos altyd, is Brigadier Dirk se studies ongelooflik volledig en insiggewend. 'n GROOT DANKIE aan hom.

Sy werk laat my dink aan my dae gedurende die eerste semester van 1967 as student in die Suid-Afrikaanse Polisiekollege waar Brig Snyman (toe nog 'n kolonel) aan die hoof was van die Berede Afdeling. Hy het ons eendag toegespreek en gesê: "Iets wat die moeite werd is om gedoen te word, is werd om goed gedoen te word." Hy het ook verwys na 'n liedjie van Charles Jacobie wat daardie tyd gewild was met die hooftema: “Do what you do do well!”

Brigadier Dirk voldoen in al sy werke aan daardie leuse.
Sterkte met jul werk!

Letters - June 2023

Ek is baie dankbaar dat ek oorgeskakel het vanaf die gedrukte na die digitale uitgawe van Servamus.
I am dismayed to learn of the "unintended" public release of personal information of eight victims of a rape that occurred in July 2022 in Krugersdorp.
The manner in which I was received by the acting Station Commander of Townhill SAPS, W/O P K Naidoo, on the morning of 12 April 2023, not only humbled me but caused me to eat humble pie.
