Training as a South African Air Force pilot
After I left school I joined the South African Air
Force, was trained as a pilot, and served as weekend pilot over a period of
eleven years. In that time I served as a fighter pilot and transport pilot on
three different Air Force squadrons.
My flying instructor was Lieutenant Denis Earp and
this is what he looked like before he survived a Korean prisoner of war camp
after his Mustang was shot down in Korea.
The follow image shows me with the same gentleman after
he had retired as Lieutenant General and chief of the South African Air Force:
Got degrees in science
an worked as a research chemist
After I qualified as a pilot I did a science degree, graduating with Chemistry
and Mathematics as major subjects, and thereafter obtained a post-graduate
degree in Chemistry.
I did scientific research at the Council for Scientific
and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the Iscor research laboratory for ten years
on the use of electrochemical methods in analytical chemistry. The Cathode Ray Polarograph
depicted here below is one of the instruments that I used in my research.
of the other instruments can be viewed at http://mymastersdegreesaga.blogspot.com/
Worked as Management Consultant and taught management skills
During my tenure at Iscor I was in due course
employed as management consultant on senior management level and was inter alia
engaged in managing work study projects and training middle management staff in
Graduated with a law degree
In that time I obtained a law degree and soon
thereafter went into law practice. I have worked, ever since, as a lawyer, both
in law practice, and as legal advisor. I am presently still retained as legal
adviser of a corporation and employed, from time to time, as ad hoc legal
adviser and forensic investigator by other parties.
The Range Rider - a vehicle that I built
I have been involved in a variety of business
ventures and during the 80s developed and built two prototypes of a motor
vehicle, the Range Rider.
The following image is that of the second prototype
of the vehicle:
The vehicles passed their road tests with flying
colours, sailed through the roadworthy tests, were found suitable to be
comprehensively insured by a leading insurance company and were leased with a
facility obtained from a leading bank. However, I foresaw the upheaval to come
in a new South Africa and decided to close down the project. That proved to be
the second wisest decision that I have ever made – the wisest decision being
the decision to marry my first wife, Susan, to whom I am still married as I pen
Conducted mathematics workshops at Pretoria University and taught mathematics and commercial law at technical colleges
For some time I conducted mathematics workshops at
the Pretoria University and lectured at technical colleges in Mathematics,
Commercial Law, Handelsreg, and Company Law.
Started "THE QUEST FOR TRUTH FOUNDATION"
During 1992 I conceptualized an idea that I in due
course named, The Quest for Truth Foundation (“Die Soeke na Waarheid Stigting”)
and over the years embarked on several projects aimed at getting to the bottom
of issues that I regard as important to investigate. Those issues inter alia
included the Role of Christianity in Apartheid, the Palestinian question, and
the Land issue in South Africa. But my first quest for the truth was a search
for the truth in the Bible; a quest that has been ongoing for some two decades
and regarding which I wrote several books, soon to be published. The books are non-spiritual
and secular dissertations on the Bible.
In early 2000 I started writing as a freelance
journalist for an aviation magazine and have since had more than 70 articles published
in various publications. I have posted some of my article on my websites mentioned here below.
