To True Heroes - Poem by Gert Strydom

Under heavy fire from the enemy
into the landmine field they went,
two men went into that deadly place

to extract a lost tank,
and in they went again
to bring back
a wounded man.

Sometimes officers lead the way
scorning death in facing the enemy
and true heroes were they both.
